Tony Oursler

Tony Oursler has used film and video projections as a mode of sculpture for years. His work explores our obsession with technology and has a layer of creepiness that I love. I became obsessed with his talking sculptures at one of The Whitney Biennials years ago and was excited to find out he has a new show opening up next month in New York at Lehmann Maupin gallery called Peak. This exhibition continues his exploration of technology and its affects on the human psyche by digging into the virtual world we live in with a focus on the themes of obsession, escapism, isolation and sexual fetish. His projections combine glass, clay, steel and other raw materials. Lehmann Maupin, 201 Chrystie Street, October 7th through December 10th, 2010.
