Falling Into or Against

Gil Leung

Falling Into or Against is a movement between surface and depiction. It is about the convergence of an absence and an excess of image. Where depiction removed reappears contextually, surface filled with the presence of contingence. Where an excess of images, signification over and against itself, flattens to a multiplicative null. Immersed or distanced, falling implies this transition, the seductive pull into and against something other than.

Falling Into or Against by Gil Leung was commissioned for the ‘Flatness: Cinema after the Internet’ thematic programme for Oberhausen Short Film Festival 2013.
