"Yason Banalís practice sleepwalks somewhere in-between dreamy conceptualism and nocturnal aesthetics. From drawing, writing and craftsmaking to photography, video and performance, the artist fuses various elements and concerns into works that evoke contemporary folklores both speculative and awkward. In The Legend of the Sleepwalking Tricks, young men listen to death metal while sipping milk laced with sleeping pills. A fictional romance between hero and starlet serves as backdrop for The Joyful Mysteries, while the dark legend of serial killer Andrew Cunanan is turned into a post-colonial critique with St. Andy Q. Recently Banal is touching on miracles and visions, film cultures and natural disasters."
