Tony Oursler

CAPC musée d'art contemporain
7 rue Ferrère
October 30, 1997–January 4, 1998

In Bordeaux, eyeballs will swivel from walls, talking heads will chatter away, and empty suits will greet the visitor with moans, as Tony Oursler transforms a section of the capcMusée this fall with his signature video projections. Curated by Jean Marc Avrilla, plans for the installation include a giant site-specific cube that serves as the screen for images of cityscapes, figures, and body parts, an extensive single-channel video, a new performance collaboration with Constance de Jong, and Switch, Oursler’s 1996 piece commissioned by the Musée National d'Art Moderne. Scattered throughout the museum, seven of the aforementioned eyeballs will hang suspended in space, watching the visitors watch them.
