For an otherworldly experience, dare yourself to enter American artist Tony Oursler’s eclectic rumination on brain stimulation and zoom through the eccentric dreamscape located at the Garage. Previously showcased at the artist’s recent retrospective at the Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Arts, this debut exhibition in Hong Kong features the works Lock 2, 4, 6 bring an intuitive mind-stunning experience as visitors navigate through a maze of synchronized projections, super-graphics and shaped flat panels. Inspired by the puzzle of the mind, body problem and neurological and brain imaging advances, the installation is designed to capture an epistemological, social, anatomical and linguistic feedback process that connects the interrelated systems. Viewers become part of the art and the analytical process by moving from element to element, tracing the flow of cause and effect, all with the vividness of a neurotic caffeine binge brought by CURATOR Art & Café.
An unprecedented partnership bridging contemporary digital art and the culinary world, Oursler will be collaborating with CURATOR to construct a café, with drinks inspired by Oursler’s body of work. The coffee booth forms a meta-installation, utilising synchronized projections, graphics and shaped flat panels to form a maze through which viewers can experience a truly immersive exploration. Oursler’s installation correlates with the concept of caffeine, in which caffeine stimulates cerebral activity, acting as a central nervous system stimulant that affects the body in many ways.
