Two Half Reasons
One night only – A special event with Oliver Husain
Thursday October 18, 2007, 8 pm
Gallery TPW is delighted to host a special event with German artist Oliver Husain. Two Half Reasons – One Night Only invites you to participate in a social cabaret — come art opening — come exhibition experiment on wobbly stilts. For one night only audiences will encounter each other through the lens of film, decoys, sweet decoration, eclectic hats, and an abundance of potential.
Born in Frankfurt am Main, Husain studied fine arts in Baroda, India and film at HfG Offenbach, Germany. His experience in Baroda — where he decided to pursue mud architecture as a career — is described in the video Squiggle , which was included in the exhibition We Can Do This Now at The Power Plant in 2007. The range of Husain’s award winning work extends from computer animation to documentary film to Bollywood dance sequences. His films have been screened internationally, in 2007 at Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen; Mar del Plata Festival and Recontres Berlin Madrid. Most recently, Husain’s Five Thinking Hats was exhibited at Greene Naftali Gallery, New York.
