Pratchaya Phinthong asked to Vichai Malikul, a scientific illustrator, to participate to his project on sleeping sickness.
His contribution was an original drawing representing a sterilized fly. The drawing details with big precision the fly’s head endowed with a trunk stinging, called a proboscis, and through which the animal transmits pathogenic agents.
This processual artwork around the sleeping sickness spreaded in sub-saharian Africa through the installation of 500 traps for tsetse flies.
