„Tony Oursler. SPECULAR“ is published on the occasion of the acclaimed American artist’s exhibition at Kunstraum Dornbirn, which took place in Fall 2021. It contains two new in-depth interviews by Alice Ko and Noam Elcott and installation views of Oursler’s new body of work called “SPECULAR”, shown in Dornbirn for the very first time.
For the project „SPECULAR“, Oursler has produced seven new spherical digital projections of macro shots of eyes. It is a continuation of the series “Obscura” which began in 1996 and various iterations have been produced through the years. These works explore the creative and destructive energy of conspiracy theories such as denial of the moon landing, the illuminati, 5G/COVID-19 causation, chemtrails, and the pseudoscience of iridology and psychedelics.
