Tony Oursler

(b. 1957, New York)

Presented by Lehmann Maupin

Known as the “father of American video sculpture”, who contemplates issues related to the influence of technology on identity, Tony Oursler (b.1957) will present his mixed-media works inspired by the phenomenon of facial recognition that visualize a composite of digitized facial features and the algorithms designed and aggregated from them.

The Installation Sector will feature his new multimedia installation of works which incorporate glass, computers and water. Thematically, the ubiquitous element of water becomes a repository for our belief systems as the artist references the development of cartography and the subsequent vanishing of sea monsters, Hollywood movies and evil maritime spirits, counterculture and the pseudoscience of water memory.
