Libia Castro born in Madrid (Spagna), 1970. Ólafur Ólafsson born in Reykjavik (Islanda), 1973

Their artistic research ranges through various media to focus primarily on the use of video lately. Sensitive to the context, to its transformations, to the tensions and contradictions that run through a present in perennial redefinition, Libia Castro and Ólafur Ólafsson conceive art as a way of reading the surrounding world and feel the need to challenge themselves against automatism of situations accepted a priori. Among the global phenomena that affect them emerge those linked to the trans-cultural orientation of the current world and to its consequent mobility, which until recently was unthinkable.
