Oliver Husain is a filmmaker and artist based in Toronto and Frankfurt. Addressing a dialogue between images and objecthood, 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 and subvert fixed readings of the original material. His installations, performances and films set up narratives that charm or fold the viewers into questioning their role as a spectator or subject.
