Welcome to Lucky Me? brought to you by the Lucky 3.

The Lucky 3 are of Filipino origins. The exhibition is a nostalgic interpretation of Filipino culture. The title of the exhibition is a wordplay on the ubiquitous Filipino instant noodle brand; Lucky Me!, a staple of every Filipino household.
Unreliable narrators at best, our voices speak of diaspora—of people experiencing constant displacement,renovation and salvaging heritage in the face of cultural loss. Motifs from Filipino iconography are deconstructed ​and chaotically reconstructed anew, thus evoking a sense of nostalgia and belonging to a people disenfranchised racially and on a socio-economic level.
Hopefully this will be a learning experience to our mostly white audience, a peek into the reality of Iceland’s Filipino community.
First and foremost this event is a celebration of the Filipino immigrants in this country—of a dislocated and displaced people still trying to carve out a space they can call home. Mabuhay and Salamat.

Lucky 3 is a collective founded by Darren Mark, Dýrfinna Benita Basalan and Melanie Ubaldo; Icelandic artists of Filipino origins.
