Leaving Atlantis

Julia Winckler, Nerea Martinez de Lecea

    Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition


    Leaving Atlantis is an 8 minute video installation based on the central themes of loss of home and cultural displacement. It explores the experience of having become uprooted from one’s place of origin. In a collaboration between artists Julia Winckler and Nerea Martinez de Lecea, still images, moving images, sound, song and text were combined to create an expressionistic installation for gallery and educational settings.

    In 2003 it was selected for Random-Ize Taipei, Taiwanese Art Festival, a film and video festival held in Taipei on 17 May to 1 June 2003 at various galleries. We were also invited in 2012 to screen it at Aberythwyth Arts Centre, in 2011 at The Horse Hospital arts venue in London and at the Phoenix gallery in 2004 as part of a group show.
