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).
Osías Yanov’s exhibition is commissioned and produced by Gasworks.
