Reliable Copy


(Founded in 2018, based out of Bangalore)

Reliable Copy is a publishing house and curatorial practice dedicated to the realisation and circulation of works, projects, and writing by and around artists.  Reliable Copy is based in Bangalore, India, and was founded in 2018. It is represented by the artists Nihaal Faizal and Sarasija Subramanian.

Nihaal Faizal (b. 1994, based in Bangalore) is an artist based in Bangalore, India. His works respond to the copy, the replica, the remake, the gadget and the gimmick, often reflecting upon media documents from popular culture and collective memory. 

Sarasija Subramanian (b. 1992, based in Bangalore) is an artist whose work engages with historical texts, oral histories, and myths, stemming from the want to re-visit critical moments from the past, often of great importance during their time, and bring them back into the public eye to examine in our current contexts. Sarasija has also worked extensively on various editorial projects, and is the editor at Reliable Copy, a publishing house and curatorial practice based in Bangalore, India.
