An Ealing Trilogy
Video installation | hdv | color | 7'46'' | United Kingdom | 2014
An Ealing Trilogy is a response to selected portraits from the collection of the National Portrait Gallery, London. Commissioned by the gallery, the film re-invents the lives of inspirational people who have links to Ealing, West London including Dusty Springfield, Charlie Chaplin and Freddie Mercury. Tableaux imagery is combined with an abstract soundscape to create a captivating slow motion film portrait of people and places from a west London borough.
Eelyn Lee is an award-winning artist-filmmaker who had works screened across London including Tate Modern and Whitechapel Gallery as well as internationally in Paris, Berlin and Toronto. Using processes of devising and collaboration her films use rich imagery and soundscapes to tell multi-layered stories about people and place. She is interested in groups of people, both in the making of the work and the subject of the work itself. The vision, energy and experience she brings to the creative process builds an environment conducive to making bold and original work. www.eelynlee.com
