Artist Residency at Metal

Estuary 2 cropped website

This month Eelyn Lee will be spending three weeks at Metal, an artistic lab on the Thames Estuary. Metal have offered Eelyn a residency at their Chalkwell Hall base in Southend to continue her two-year exploration of collaborative filmmaking.

Following last year's 5-day lab at the Barbican which was supported by Arts Council England, Eelyn will be further developing ideas around notions of fear and monsters by exploring local stories associated with the river.

Eelyn will be talking to groups of people with connections to the estuary including the fishing community in Leigh-on-Sea; dock workers at Tilbury and residents on Canvey Island.

The research will inform a further two moving image works and will culminate in the making of a long form film in 2017.

The first iteration of the project, Monster made during the Barbican lab will premiere at the BAFTA Qualifying Aesthetica Short Film Festival [5th - 8th Nov 2015] in York. Taking inspiration from Shelley's Frankenstein, the film tells the story of monster created from other people's fear and features BAFTA / Palme d'Or winning actress Anamaria Marinca [4 Months, 3 Weeks, 2 Days].
