The first UK solo exhibition and a major new commission by Buenos Aires-based artist Osías Yanov.
Working across sculpture, video and performance, Yanov undertakes research in museums, archives and nightclubs, re-configuring the hierarchies of visibility that structure recent and ancient identities and cultures. Based on the idea of a ‘breeding ground’, where body language is freed from personal histories and preconceptions, Yanov’s commission will be developed on site during his three-month residency at Gasworks, which began on 8 January 2018.
Osías Yanov is an artist and researcher based in Buenos Aires. Recent exhibitions include: 6_noevius_10 Agmixmix Vixfam at Nora Fisch Gallery, Buenos Aires (2017); CRISIS, Zarigüeya /Alabado Contemporáneo, Quito; VI Sesión en el Parlmento, MALBA, Buenos Aires; and the 11th Gwangju Biennale (all 2016).
The exhibition is commissioned and produced by Gasworks. Osías Yanov’s residency is supported by Erica Roberts and developed in partnership with URRA and arteBA, Argentina.
