Leila Khoury Nimry was thirteen years old when she fled her home in Haifa, Palestine during the Nakba in 1948. In PRE-EXODUS she shares the memories of her childhood bedroom, illustrated and developed into a virtual reality experience, created by artist Solenne Tadros. The work activates questions of memory, intergenerational trauma, forced displacement and loss of land.
