11th Berlin Biennale on Instagram and in the Media Library
In these times of uncertainty, we slow down and listen anew. These and other audio, video, and image documentations can be found in the Media Library on the website.
Curator Renata Cervetto on Osías Yanov: “Reading this contribution in the current situation unveils a completely new meaning in Osías’s work. Now it seems to describe a utopic future scenario of bonding anew or reconnecting. How much we miss the human touch, the closeness to one another, the desire to go back to that state. How can we find ourselves after months of isolation? What will these actions described by Osías mean in our world next year? I also feel that human touch is a way of touching the earth, becoming grounded, connecting with oneself. The detachment of bodies and complete uncertainty provokes, at least for me, the feeling of being on a roller coaster where your heart beats faster and anxiety never stops. It is like this is the new way of being until we find a way to become grounded again.”
