Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1980.
Osías Yanov’s work ensues at the threshold between the disciplines of dance and sculpture. Through form, gesture, and symbol, his works address issues of gender identity, the reconfiguration of the body in response to its environment, and pain as a form of ecstasy and liberation.
Yanov has studied at the most prestigious centers of art education in Argentina: the Universidad Torcuato Di Tella/Beca Kuitca (2010-2012), the Centro de Investigaciones Artísticas (CIA) (2009-2010), Intercampos/Fundación Telefónica (2007-2009). He has studied theater, dance, and choreography with important figures like Florencia Vecino (contemporary dance) and Vivi Tellas (biodrama).
In pursuit of a broader conception of authorship, Yanov and four other artists working in different fields founded the Rosa Chancho art collective in 2006. Rosa Chancho uses the performance medium to create narrative moments where it is impossible to distinguish between group and individual.
Starting in 2006, exhibitions of his work have been held in Argentina, Spain, France, Brazil, and Russia. His works are part of the collections of the Cisneros Foundation, Jorge Federico Klemm Foundation, the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Rosario, Argentina (Macro) and the Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires (MAMBA), among others. He is currently applying his research to the sphere of education.
