“Mosquito Revenge”: Vivian Caccuri’s multimedia exhibition in Denmark

(Askeby, Denmark)

Kunsthal 44Møen presents Mosquito Revenge, the first solo show in Denmark by Brazillian artist Vivian Caccuri.

Mosquito Revenge is a multimedia exhibition that retells the story of the European colonization of “the new world” with mosquitoes as the main characters. In this story the insect is seen as a paramilitary force, referring to the power of tropical nature that is disturbed by new artificial structures, poorly planned dams, sugar plantations and slavery. As a result of this overall catastrophe, mosquitoes become ubiquitous and deadly.

The exhibition grows out of Vivian Caccuri’s long interest in medical histories, and her study of eighteenth-century records of diseases in the Western Hemisphere, whilst giving continuity to her practice focusing on sensory perceptions, especially sound as a physical phenomenon and its social, historical and political context.
