Oliver Husain

Oliver Husain is a filmmaker and artist based in Toronto. His website is www.husain.de. In 2015, his solo exhibition ‘beside the point’ was shown at Susan Hobbs Gallery, Toronto; a program of his films and videos was screened by pleasuredome collective, Toronto, and included in the exhibition “Depth of Perception” at Oakville Galleries. “I often begin with a portrait of a person or place. The outcome is a video or film, a text or a textile; something foldable that can be stored away easily, or something standing on thin chopstick legs. Something that might collapse under the eyes of the viewer – in a film, this could be its fragile narrative structure. The viewers are left with holding up their side by themselves. In this way, I am constructing attractive traps.”
