i thought about you when i was here: Ólafsfjörður
‘Everything is really quite simple when you create with what you have, and not think too much about what you don’t have. And most of the time, you have plenty.’
~Yvonne Tham, Asst CEO of Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay (Singapore)
i thought about you when i was here: Ólafsfjörður is by far Safiah´s personal project to date. The international collaborative art project involves a local school in Ólafsfjörður, Menntaskólinn á Tröllaskaga (MTR), and the following artists from Skammdegi Festival:
Jack Duplock(London, UK)
Fernanda Chieco (Brazil)
Jade de Robles (Spain/England)
Postcards and artworks about the food and landscape in Ólafsfjörður were created and sent to Singapore. There will be real-time correspondence and it is still a work-in-progress.
The final installation will be held in Singapore by end of 2016, after which it will be a travelling exhibition to other countries.
