featuring modern multimedia artist, Nástio Mosquito

Nástio Mosquito was born in 1981 in Angola. A multimedia artist, he creates performances, videos, music, and poetry. Mosquito’s work was first exhibited in 2006 and has been shown in many exhibitions since. His disillusionment with his early work as a television presenter and documentary filmmaker for Angola public television led him to live performance and various video projects. His work often deals with issues pertaining to the elemental human needs for food and sex, but his excavations of his personal identity occasionally touch on his nationality, as in his hilarious and viciously tongue-in-cheek "Fuck Africa."
