Tony Oursler: Art Geneva
OLIVIER VARENNE is delighted to announce his first independent participation in artgenève where he will be presenting a new body of work by Tony Oursler developed especially for the fair.
In this solo presentation of works with Olivier, Oursler, a pioneer of video art and master of surrealistic installation, has created a haunting group of figures enigmatically charged with archetypal images and characters. These evocative figures – reminiscent of a fairy, a witch, a joker – inspire the viewer to dwell on apparitions and transpositions, setting the imagination on a magical journey. The characters are undefinable, they do not comply with conventional parameters and their moving talking faces and disruptive gazes are in turn curious, unsettling and enchanting.
