A multi-disciplinary artist, his works and projects include performances, events, installations, sculptures and videos.
His pieces explore possibilities of creating conceptual and sensitive resistance fields, in the face of a stereotype-based control of subjectivity. Parties, modern rituals, gender theories, sweat, esoteric philosophies and a friendship with nature are the living and thinking material reflected in his projects.
His most recent works have been displayed at MALBA (Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires), Museo Precolombino Casa del Alabado (Quito), Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires, Museo Amparo (Puebla), Gasworks, (Londres), Tabakalera (San Sebastián), Galería Nora Fisch (Buenos Aires), Gwangju Biennial (South Korea) and Nottingham Contemporary (Great Britain).
Ave Porco was one of the schools of the Buenos Aires underground movement. ''Engrudo'' (''paste'') was how Fernando Noy used to call it, and this is where the most outlandish performances and shows could be seen. Ave Porco was born within a genealogy, and together with other similar venues consolidated a countercultural night ecosystem that has lasted until today.
On December 30th, 1999, Ave Porco closed its doors forever, with the symbolic act of tearing apart all of the furniture and decor of the club created by Sergio De Loff, and distributing it among the customers. Months later, with the economic crisis of 2001 about to explode, the space on Corrientes Avenue was demolished. Soon after, one of the first branches of DIA supermarket opened its doors, as a sign of the shrinking, speculation and financial crisis of the time.
Far from invoking a ghost, with this performance Osías Yanov attempts to activate the ''paste'': where are those Ave Porco fragments, distributed that 30th of December? What corporealities and manifestations are there behind them? Do the people and objects that were once in direct contact still have a mutual influence from afar? What is there in common between DIA supermarket and the Buenos Aires underground scene?
