Episode 4: Lucky 3, Lucky Me?

Art collective Lucky 3 is composed of Darren Mark, Dýrfinna Benita Basalan and Melanie Ubaldo. From the perspective of their “collective, first-person immigrant experience” the group has recently opened up new space for conversation on diaspora, displacement, vulnerability and belonging. The collective´s Filipino-Icelandic origins informed their breakthrough exhibition Lucky Me?, held in Kling & Bang in 2019, and as an act of quiet activism, speaks volumes about identity and location, marginalization and claim, Filipino community, and locating culture from the periphery in Iceland. Created and produced by the Icelandic Art Center, Out There brings host Becky Forsythe in conversation with artists, curators and art professionals. Intro: When You Know You Know from the album Moonlove by artist Egill Sæbjörnsson.
