Osías Yanov and Suavesitxs
Aoiɛːʁ?oh puppy calls and accidents
Saturday 29 August 7pm BST
To imagine and interchange new optics, to transit the visual height of a dog. This may not differ much from getting accustomed to communicating and sensitizing through digital cámeras.
Aoiɛːʁ?oh Puppy Calls and Accidents is the development of simultaneous cameras/actions to be seen in a live stream between Berlin, Mercedes and Buenos Aires. Like a video call between pupies, it’s an interface where multiple situations coexist, bringing us closer to a dog-experience.
An obedient human is affected by orders, these orders can trigger the affectivity of others. Understanding language is obedience in itself.
Disregarding language is freedom.
Translation is a path of accidents. Humanx – Technology – Dog.
Suavecitxs is a collective of people who get together to become puppies. We are convened by the notions of tenderness, anti-speciesism, companionship and posthumanism. We intervene public spaces and organize gatherings to expand the curiosity of those who want to sniff new perspectives. We construct notions of sociability from dogness and the typical codes of sensual imaginary.
Osías Yanov’s multidisciplinary practice includes performances, celebrations, drawings, installations, sculptures and videos. His works explore the creation of conceptual and sensorial fields of resistance against any stereotyping control of subjectivity. His practice is nurtured by gender theories, esoteric philosophies, night parties, communion with nature. He draws on cultural objects and memories that affect our bodily ways of being in the world and with each other. Yanov believes in sensorial experiences and the erotic as tools for creating knowledge and social transformation. His methodology for developing performances often involves working closely over a period of time with a group of people or community.
