Libia Castro & Ólafur Ólafsson
Bob Ostertag
Tanja Ostojić

Libia Castro and Ólafur Ólafsson (based in Rotterdam and Berlin) started their collaboration during their post-graduate studies in Visual Arts in The Netherlands in 1997. In their work, whether experiential installation environments, interventions, events, sculpture, video- or photo-works, Libia and Ólafur often collaborate with other people: groups, individuals, activists, artists and other professionals. While reflecting upon everyday life in different places in which they work, they wish to sensitize the perception of their viewers, raising questions about the human condition, focusing on existential, spatial, cultural, socio-economic and political aspects. They have participated in Manifesta 7, and exhibited at Reykjavik Art Museum, Akureyri Art Museum, CAC Málaga, CAC Vilnius, Art in General New York, De Appel CAC Amsterdam, Rotor Graz, Witte de With CAC Rotterdam, TENT Rotterdam, Kunstler Haus Bethanien Berlin, Platform Garanti CAC Istanbul, Van Abbe Museum Enschede, and the 8th Havana Biennial. They are currently shortlisted for the Prix de Rome 2009, in the Netherlands.
