Nástia's Manifesto

Installation in restrooms at VEGA and selected bars in Cph: The Barking Dog, Huset KBH, Haabet, Mesteren og Lærlingen, BAKKEN, Byens kro, VEGA

24 August – 2 September

The video Nástia’s Manifesto offers us seventeen points to success. Adopting an alter ego named Nástia, a rather cocky Nástio Mosquito talks to us, offering advice points that are a confusing mix of profundity, misogyny and pseudo-managerial rhetoric. It is a sort of experimental mantra, bluntly telling us to either dismiss or follow some of the main social constructs in society, from aspiration, status and leadership, to education, religion and history. As Nástia proclaims it is “hypocritical, ironic, and do not give a fuck”

Ser Humano

Videomøllen, Sankt Hans Gade / Ravnsborggade, 2200 København N

Every day from 26 August to 2 September, 21:30-23 pm

Ser Humano – meaning “being Human” is a montaged video installation referring to the current and ongoing social crisis of mass migration. Ser Humano is made of CCTV-footage showing humans pushing at the fences of undisclosed borders. The video combines music with powerful images in a grand projection, that can be experienced in the intersection between Ravnsborggade and Sankt Hans Gade.

Cph Art Week has invited the internationally rising star of contemporary art Nástio Mosquito (b. 1981, Angola) as this year’s city artists. As a multimedia artist, interweaving performance, video, music, installation, sound and poetry to express his ideas, Mosquito creates artworks that are both highly visual, humorous, emotional and thought-provoking. Focusing on themes such as identity, nation, religion and citizenship Mosquito intertwines stories referring to diverse subjects such as the Angolan Civil War, sexual politics, consumerism, human bigotry, racism and other symptoms of globalization that challenges the human condition. The voice of Nástio Mosquito’s is as contemporary as it gets!
