Station

Tony Oursler
21 September - 15 December 2002
Curator: Richard Julin

STATION is a new exhibition by the artist Tony Oursler where he continues the careful research into the history of technology, and in particular the television medium, its juxtaposition of good and bad, and the presence of media in everyday life. In a sculptural installation with video projections, he explores themes such as transmission and reception, the mechanics of the television studio, and the social and physical influence of the television medium.

Tony Oursler lives and works in New York. Since the 1970s he has worked with different techniques, such as painting, sculpture, video and installation. In his work, his interest in technology in relation to psychology and supernatural dimensions is a recurring theme. He has become known for his mixture of hallucinatory and poetic texts and projections on dolls in violent and humorous scenes.

Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall presents Station, a new exhibition by the artist Tony Oursler, and, on three evenings, the outdoor work The Influence Machine at Projekt Djurgårdsbrunn.
