Since the late 1970s, Oursler has forcefully turned the medium of video back on the dominant culture at large, through the use of technologies such as television and film. Oursler's response to mass media's conformist narratives and paranoid discourse - beginning with his first grotesque videos up until his more recent phantasmagorical installations - is to oppose their unhinged scenarios and psychotic ramblings. Even when using media that is primarily visual, Tony Oursler has always taken particular care with the words he places in the mouth or mind of his characters. His poetic writing - which also takes on psychoanalysis and religion - has set this American artist apart as one of the most interesting and powerful writers of his generation. This volume is the first work exclusively dedicated to Tony Oursler's poetic texts. It brings together fifty full transcriptions of video works created between 1977 and 2013, presented in their creative context and accompanied by an extensively illustrated scholarly analysis. Composed by the artist himself as a bouquet in which language explodes into a spectrum of colours and registers. Vox Vernacular provides us with an authentic anthology of his work. Laurent Busine is director of MAC's, working in collaboration with Denis Gielen. Meer nog dan de literatuur, zijn het de volkstalen die de Amerikaanse kunstenaar Tony Oursler inspireerden sinds hij eind jaren 1970 de videokunst begon te verkennen. Zo wou hij de overheersende cultuur met haar eigen wapens bestrijden, vooral televisie en film. Tegenover de conformistische verhalen en het paranoïde discours van de massamedia plaatsen zowel zijn eerste groteske video's als zijn recente fantasmagorische installaties hun waanzinnige verhalen en hun psychotische stemmen. Hoewel zijn werken in de eerste plaats gezien moeten worden, besteedt Tony Oursler ook bijzonder veel aandacht aan de woorden die hij in de mond of het brein van zijn personages legt. Deze schriftuur, die naar poëzie neigt, maar ook naar de psychoanalyse of de godsdienst, maakt van deze Amerikaanse kunstenaar een van de boeiendste en spraakmakendste tekstschrijvers van zijn generatie. 0 g.
