GALLERYSKE, New Delhi
March 13, 2014

On March 13th 2014 GALLERYSKE, New Delhi screened a short film by Shumona Goel and Shai Heredia, I am micro(2012), followed by a series of five video pieces by Oliver Husain (Hovering Proxies, 2010, Mount Shasta, 2008, Leona Alone, 2009, Item Number, 2012 and Purfled Promises, 2009).

Shot in the passages of an abandoned optics factory and centered on the activities of a low-budget film crew, I Am Microis an experimental essay about filmmaking, the medium of film, and the spirit of independent cinema.

Addressing a dialogue between images and objecthood, Oliver Husain's projects often begin with a portrait of a person or place. He uses a wide range of cinematic languages and visual codes—such as dance, puppetry, and animation—to disassemble fixed readings of the original material.
