An Ealing Trilogy

An Ealing Trilogy

In 2013 Eelyn Lee was commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery [NPG], London to make a new piece of moving image work as part of their annual Creative Connections programme.

Eelyn researched the gallery's collection of portraits of people who have links to the borough of Ealing, West London before collaborating with students from Brentside High School to make An Ealing Trilogy [8mins/2k/single screen]. The work was exhibited in the gallery from June - Sept, 2014 and marked the first projected video installation to be shown at NPG.

The work went on to be exhibited at Pitzhanger Manor Gallery, Ealing. 
In Dec 2014 it was selected for Les Rencontres Internationales, a festival celebrating new cinema and contemporary art and screened at the GAÎTÉ LYRIQUE in Paris and Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin.
