    TENT presents the first comprehensive solo exhibition in the Netherlands by the Rotterdam-Berlin based artists Libia Castro & Ólafur Ólafsson. Their survey exhibition in TENT gathers video-based, installation, sound and sculptural projects from the last decade. Libia Castro & Ólafur Ólafsson’s work can be regarded as an ongoing investigation of the way in which life, society and the individual are influenced by socio-economic and political factors. The presentation is curated by Adam Budak. A three-part symposium has been organised to accompanying the exhibition (9 February, 13 March, 17 April) and is concluded with the publication and distribution of a newspaper.

    Asymmetry is a guiding principle in Castro and Ólafsson's multimedia and interventionist work. They address injustice and inequality, and portray the rejected subject as well as the authoritative subject. On their journeys, the artists' research into the workings of inequality attempts to decipher laws on the distribution of power. In a quest for a universal vocabulary their installations bring together texts, languages, and traditions.
