De Appel, Amsterdam 2004 / curated by Theo Tegelaers
(From Press Release)
During July and August, Castro and Ólafsson are the guests of De Appel where they will have the entire second floor at their disposal. The installation threads its way through different spaces and includes sound recordings of migrants and refugees telling stories about their reception in the Netherlands, about their journey here and their search for a land where they would have a future. The works are a remix of images and stories from Castro and Ólafsson’s ongoing research into the influence and consequences that socio-economical and political agreements have on life. This results in often playful and critical works emerging from found images, interventions, actions, videos, appliances and archaic building materials.
