Tony Oursler has explored the alienating relationships between man and his cultural production. His work has therefore contained a certain number of recurring themes such as violence, sex, religion, money, family, media, etc. It generally concerns the question of man, reduced to the status of puppet, doll, in a tortured and fragmented body, in absurd, extreme and tormented situations.

 

Tony Oursler is born in New York, NY, in 1957. He lives and works in New York, NY.

 

Tony Oursler has had numerous survey exhibitions including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Tate Gallery, London ; the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art ; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York ; Pinchuk Art Center, Kiev, Ukraine ; the Musée de Jeu de Paume, Paris ; the Kunsthaus Bregenz, Austria ; Musée des Arts Contemporain in Grand-Hornu, Belgium.
