About Saskia Olde WolbersPhotograph: Jill Wooster. Courtesy Maureen Paley, London
Born in The Netherlands in 1971, Sakia Olde Wolbers lives and works in London. Applying a process of research into oral history, literary works and academic text to her audio installation with Artangel, Olde Wolbers brings into focus two important aspects of her work, the voice over and the composed sound track. Ordinarily known for her video work, she creates fictional narratives linked to real life events, often those that are in the public eye.
