About Tony Oursler
In his most famous installations, Tony Oursler creates scenes of disfigured, immobile bodies sculpted from nylon with video projections of moving faces on their heads. In some cases, Oursler projects fragmented facial features onto walls and bulbous sculptures, creating an eerie juxtaposition of animate and inanimate figures. He often places decapitated heads in uncomfortable positions on the floor or installed alongside props as more faces projected onto the heads spew a narrative. Directly engaging and "trapping" the viewer is Oursler's primary concern in art-making. Read Less
