Nástio Mosquito: Nástia Answers Gabi

Angolan artist Nástio Mosquito is one of the most energetic and versatile artists of his generation. He uses music, photography, film and performance
poetry as the means by which his persona, at once charismatic and transgressive, pronounces on the nature of our globalised world.

In Nástia Answers Gabi (2010), we first encounter the artist in a derelict building after listening to his haunting a capella version of Time is on My
Side, talking to the camera as ‘Nástia’ (the female equivalent of Nástio) and in a joke-Russian accent. There follow nine short scenes in which he answers questions posed by Gabi Ngcobo, an independent curator, writer and artist from Durban, sometimes with passion, in musing diatribes, sometimes dismissively.
