Tony Oursler
Curator: Pascal Rousseau

In the Chapelle de l’Oratoire of Nantes’ fine art museum, visitors can experience the multimedia installation American artist Tony Oursler has created for the exhibition Hypnose (“Hypnosis”).

Short videos reminiscent of early cinema are played in a décor filled with multiple objects, sculptures and screens where stories from the history of hypnosis come to life.
While walking in this half-lit, phantasmagoric, atemporal space, between video-sculptures, ambling above or below projected images: listen to different characters tell you their stories, and let yourself feel the troubling sensations of a hypnotic experience. From Mesmer’s baquet to Charcot’s experiments, by way of the current obsession with mind-control through screens, Tony Oursler questions phenomena like attention, distraction, and influence over the masses to create a cheerful, off-kilter and ironic reading of modern art’s historical relationship with fascination.
