With the presence of Tony Oursler on Tuesday, October 15th at 7pm.

Pioneer in video art, the American artist Tony Oursler exhibits his ingenious devices—part sculpture, installation and performance—around the world. For the exhibition Trees, he creates Eclipse, a video installation placed in the garden of the Fondation Cartier, where the trees are used to create images with video projection. He writes: “The enchanted forests are a refuge for our imagination.” Inspired by the transformation of Daphne into a tree, the Tree of Life from the Norse cosmogony, or a small metaphorical drawing of a tree by Charles Darwin representing his evolutionary theory, he creates a dynamic video installation where trees become the center of conflicting world views and come to life with projections inviting the viewer to reconsider technology and nature. When night falls, come and see Tony Oursler’s Lost Garden, a place between the known and the unimaginable, where utopic dreams still live on.
