Multimedia artist N stio Mosquito presents a one-off site-specific performance, The Age I Don t Remember, to the ICA in London on Friday 6 November.

N stio Mosquito the maverick multimedia artist dubbed the 'coolest guy in art' will perform on the boards of the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) on Friday 6 November. The Age I Don't Remember promises to be urgent, funny, candid, confrontational, satyrical and cool, in true Mosquito style. The performance will position the audience within N stio s constructed dreamscape, surrounded by musicians, video screens, displaying text works and film pieces, and the mercurial artist himself. Utilising a mix of new and contemporary media, Mosquito explores the perceptive realms of dream and reality, asking the audience to test and question the boundaries between the two. Expect to be dragged headfirst kicking, laughing and screaming with mirth into N stio Mosquito's world.

He explains: I want people to have a healthy relationship with their dreams and establish a clarity between dream and illusion. We all want to achieve things, to materialise our ideas; I m not alone in wanting to make some aspect of dreams a reality. Sometimes functionality is detached from spirituality and dreams, and I don t think this disconnection is a healthy thing.
Watch the teaser video below, filmed by Mosquito, to whet your appetite for The Age I Don't Remember:

N stio Mosquito was awarded the Future Generation Art Prize 2014 and has recently been announced as one of the shortlisted artists for the international art prize, Artes Mundi 7. He also performed at the 56th Venice Biennale. Recent exhibitions include Daily Lovemaking, Ikon Gallery, Birmingham (2015). Mosquito featured in CCQ6 - on our loud, yellow cover, in fact - and proved to be a fascinating spectacle in himself. The establishment love him, all the while he pokes and probes at the foibles of humanity from the distance of his characterisations.

The Age I Don't Remember has been commissioned by EMDASH in partnership with the ICA. EMDASH is a philanthropic foundation that enables projects with contemporary artists, founded by Andrea Dibelius in 2010. For the rare chance to see one of Mosquito's performances, tickets can be booked via the ICA.

N stio Mosquito will perform 'The Age I Don't Remember' at the ICA on 6 November 2015 at 7pm. Tickets cost3- 5
