Nástio Mosquito

Nástio Mosquito is a poet, performance artist, actor, and filmmaker. 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. His work was included in the African Pavilion of the 52nd Venice Biennial (2007), and as part of the 12th Poetry Africa Festival (2008).
