Retired and Old Superheroes

These life-like sculptures were created by the French artist Gilles Barbier. The installlation is called “L’Hospice”.

It seems that superheroes have finally grown old. Now they don’t fly around the cities taking out bad guys and saving the world. They while away at a superhero nursing home. Flabby Catwoman sleeps after the lunch, Mr. Fantastic limbs are overstretched, The Incredible Hulk rests in his wheelchair, while Wonder Woman stands by Captain America’s gourney.
