Tony Oursler, projector and mannequin, 2000

American multimedia artist Tony Oursler is considered a pioneer of video art in the 1970s. Using the technological possibilities of his time, he questions various facets of existing pop culture. Typical for Oursler are the moving images of faces or sense organs, projected on unusual materials. In a theatrical way he involves the viewer in the confrontation between reality and mimetic imagery, an interaction that can be both serene and chaotic.

‘Truncatated Duntata’ is an installation in which a mannequin serves as a screen, on which a vertical mouth projection functions as a speaking vagina. In a narrative way, the artwork plays on the psyche of the viewer, who experiences the alienation of his own body.
