The mobility grants awarded by AC/E
are enabling the artists Libia Castro and Ólafur Ólafsson to take part in an exhibition project at London’s Waterside Contemporary, for which they are developing a fragment of their project The Partial Declaration of Human Wrongs.
This project consists of a series of works based on texts published in newspapers by the British philosopher Nina Power and a large installation on the façade of St. George’s Hall
in Liverpool. The texts underline how easy it is to subvert, ignore and corrupt the rights enshrined in the Declaration of Human Rights.
Castro and Ólafsson use many artistic strategies to promote political debate, from advertising to public interventions and music – elements that can be seen in the exhibition at the Waterside, on the façade of the gallery. In addition to the exhibitions, a series of parallel activities will be staged, including a talk at the gallery with Nina Power and the screening of works by video artists at Tate Modern. The whole project will be compiled and published by Waterside Contemporary.
