“Incredibly powerful” Independent
In this 2014 project Lola Arias explores the question of what it means to be a war veteran of the Malvinas/Falkland conflict.
The video installation is made up of five videos that tell the story of how those who became soldiers in 1982 at the age of 18 remember the conflict and how they feel like veterans today at the age of 50. Each of them reconstructs their experience in a place they live every day: a psychologist relives the explosion of a bomb in the psychiatric hospital where he works, a triathlon champion relives the death of his partner in a swimming pool where he trains every day…
All of them will relive their memories as if a time machine had brought their past back to the present day.
