Seattle-born, Paris-based artist Oscar Tuazon (born 1975) works in the overlap between architecture and sculpture. His succinct structures evoke the raw armature of buildings, using the conventional construction materials of concrete, steel and wooden beams to outline areas that viewers are invited to move through. In this way, Tuazon's works--at once forceful and subtle, monumental and discreet--allow his audience to experience everyday space as extraordinarily arbitrary in its divisions and enclosures. Die documents the production of Tuazon's 2011 site-specific installation for the inaugural exhibition at The Power Station, a new venue for contemporary art in Dallas, Texas. For this installation, Tuazon produced two works, "Die" and "Dead Wrong." These works are recorded in black-and-white and color photographs, as well as through sketches and plans. An essay by Kim West, a poem by Ariana Reines and a text by Tuazon meditate on the broader implications of Tuazon's work.
