Yamandú Canosa

Yamandú Canosa

Montevideo (Uruguay), 1954

Canosa uses various techniques to explore the limits of language. His interest in the notions of cultural identity, memory, human relations and immigration marks his subjective point of view. His artworks create a new experience of the landscape. The plans are mixed to impose constant visual readjustments between verticality and horizontality, between second and third dimension. This optical force is extended in the installation of the paintings within the space, thus creating new compositions. The representation of the horizon and the geographical limits put together a map of human relations that suggests a subjective dimension of the identity and challenges the concept of the nation-state.
