VETERANS

2014

VIDEO INSTALLATION

Veterans explores the question of what it means to be a war veteran, in the context of the Malvinas/ Falkland War.

This video installation asks how this war is remembered by those men who were around 18 year-old soldiers in 1982, and are now in 2014, at the age of 50 something, veterans. Each of the veterans reconstructs his experience in a space he currently attends daily: a psychologist re-enacts a bomb explosion at the Psychiatric Hospital where he works, a triathlon champion re-enacts the death of this partner in the swimming pool where he trains every day…All of them perform their war memories like in a time machine that brings their past into their present.
