Memorial, 53 Mosquitoes


53 Mosquitoes was initially an installation the artist made in the studio at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, ME, summer 2015. During the residency, the artist kept track of each day and time that he killed a mosquito in the studio by writing next to its dead body on the wall. This book is a memorial book to the fallen, featuring drawings of each mosquito he killed. Each page corresponds to one day of the nine-week residency at Skowhegan, resulting in a document of his experience and a recreation of the studio installation in chronological order rather than spatial dimension.
