Magasinet Walden and Filmform present Oleg Tcherny at Filmform
Born in Minsk, Belarus, Oleg Tcherny has been making films and videos since the 1990s. In his more recent work, influenced by Giorgio Agamben, he suspends the progression of images through a process of vertical editing. Usually shot in HD, his videos sound out the thickness of time, pushing the boundaries of visual, auditory, and conceptual abstraction. Tcherny has studied cinema in the editing room with Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet; he was an assistant to the filmmaker Daniel Schmid.
