Idan Hayosh

May 2011 to Sep 2011
1979 Israël

Idan Hayosh was invited by the OHNO COOPERATION to participate in the fifth edition of the OPEN AIR festival.


Idan Hayosh (ISR, 1979) constructs installations inspired by found footage of military formations and layouts. An integral part of these constructions is the synergy between the image and its own amplified sound. Hayosh’s work process is both a direct and indirect reaction to images whose essences convey striking visual conductivity. He deals mainly with aggressive and intimidation images that imply danger by their inherent symbolic (and actual) function or, additionally, through their elaborate arrangement. Inspired by these collected images, he constructs temporary sculptures and installs them in a highly structured form. These constructions ultimately form platforms for confrontational incidents.


Idan has previously exhibited in Outpost, Amsterdam; Centraal Museum, Utrecht; Dienstgebaüde, Zurich; Il ponte contemporanea, Rome; PHB, Berlijn; de Waag, Amsterdam; De Service Garage; BYETHEWAY projects, Amsterdam; Bergen Kunsthall, Bergen; W139, Amsterdam; Kunsthaus Essen, Essen; Arti et Amicitiae, Amsterdam and ZEMOS98, Sevilla and was awarded the Esther Kroon Price in 2005.
