In 2017, Glen King and his team were commissioned by the National Gallery of Victoria to make the most challenging body of work of their careers. Comprising of 100 fibreglass skulls, each 1.2 metre high and designed by Australian-born sculptor Ron Mueck, the installation was titled MASS 2017 and acquired through the Alfred Felton Bequest for the gallery’s current NGV Triennial exhibition.

Glen will provide an honest account of collaborating with numerous creative and technical agencies and the challenges of making the moulds and fabricating the skulls that were made up of 20 parts in each two-piece mould, plus dozens of teeth.
