Under Deconstruction will be on exhibit at the National Gallery of Iceland until February 19. This most recent collaboration between Libia Castro & Ólafur Ólafsson is a combination of older collaborations and new works. In fact the neon ‘Landið þitt er ekki til’ (“Your Country Does Not Exist”) is part of an ongoing Libia & Ólafur campaign that began back in 2003 and has made its way around the world in various permutations.

Libia & Ólafur collaborations explore the political, socio-economic, and personal forces that affect life in the present day. They provide an interesting, colourful and thought-provoking insight into post-Kreppa Iceland (and indeed a post-crisis world in general). Take advantage whilst you can.
