Libia Castro born 1970 in Madrid, Spain

Ólafur Ólafsson born 1973 in Reykiavik, Iceland



Based in Rotterdam and Berlin and aptly referred to as “citizens of the world” – met in the Netherlands in 1997 and have been collaborating since. From the outset, their work caught attention in the Netherlands and in Iceland, and soon internationally, earning them in 2009 the third prize of the prestigious Dutch art award Prix de Rome, for their video Lobbyists. They have been chosen to exhibit on Iceland’s behalf at the 54th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia 2011.
