Ikon Gallery presents the exhibition Nástio Mosquito: DAILY LOVEMAKING. Nástio Mosquito is one of the most energetic and versatile artists of his generation.

Using music, photography, film and performance poetry, Mosquito reflects on the nature of our globalised world and proposes ‘DAILY LOVEMAKING is the expression of the joy I find when confronting the contradictions of my emotional, social and cultural realities. It is a declaration of love to consequence and not action … All works/pieces are first about loving, being loved, giving, receiving and making sure I do not die before sharing why my mother made a very good decision when she decided to go through with all those labour pains the day I was born … That creates inevitably contexts where political, social and cultural realities are addressed… A daily commitment to die satisfied with “now”.’
