Tony Oursler: Blue Transmission

The Lisson Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new works by Tony Oursler, Blue Transmission. Tony Oursler's work centres on our acceptance of the vanishing distinction between what is real and what is constructed through the use of common yet mimetic forms such as video, computers, television, film, photographs, talking heads and eyes etc. His fascination with the immense potential of new technologies and its power to imitate human spiritual and emotional capacities is an important feature of his work. Oursler's video installations have been largely influenced by his examination of the media society and its effects on the soul of man, together with his analysis of the attempts made by psychological techniques to compensate for the dramatic loss of personal relations with fellow human beings. The pain of fragmentation and the reaction to the alienation from our bodies and from society is invoked into the theme of his new pieces of work.
