Aleph incident, 1996. mixed media on paper.141 x 228 cm.
In the nineties, Yamandú Canosa began working on the project entitled Hotel Nada (1991-1993), which he presented in different exhibitions at the galleries Benet Costa and Ciento in Barcelona, the Centre de Lectura in Reus, and the gallery Rian Van Rijsbergen in Rotterdam.
His works often scandalize the spectator, presenting some stories that bring to the extreme the common logic of which we all participate. Nevertheless, the same author defends that his exercises, always orbiting around social conventions, are not born from cynicism, but from the surprise of a naïve attitude.
He studied Fine Arts at the Parsons School of Design in New York. His work has been exhibited in galleries such as the Akiyoshidai International Art Village (Japan), the Künstlerhaus Bethanien (Germany), the Contemporary Culture Center of Barcelona, the Clara Oliver gallery (New York), the Michael Haas gallery (Berlin) the Mizuma gallery (Tokyo).
He has participated in exhibitions at national and international centers such as the Museum of Montserrat, Barcelona (2017); 'Guillermo Pfaff / Adrià Cañameras', Gallery Heinrich Ehrhardt, Madrid (2016); 'The invisible space', Piramidón, Barcelona (2016); 'Diògenes' lesson, Tecla Sala, Hospitalet (2016); University of Connecticut, United States (2015); 'Lighting', Carles Taché Gallery, Barcelona (2015); Palau de Casavells, Girona (2014)
