This video was made in my studio yesterday, as was the art piece you see at the end. I was reponding to some extraordinary footage taken in February 1939 of the retreat from Spain by half a million Spanish Republican exiles. This exodus of people has become known as the Retirada, which is also the name of the film which you can see by visiting this page: Retirada
Unbelievably moving to view scenes of this moment which was lived through by my family, but never mentioned. I am, through my project slowly gathering the pieces of the narrative and enacting rituals of repair.
