Exhibition Opens 20th June at National Portrait Gallery

An Ealing Trilogy Film Still for ELPWEB
Film still from An Ealing Trilogy

Artist filmmaker Eelyn Lee will be showing a new piece of moving image work at the National Portrait Gallery, London this summer. Commissioned by the gallery to work in collaboration with a group of young people from Brentisde High School, Eelyn ran a series of workshops over a four month period to develop content for this 7 minute single-screen projection.

An Ealing Trilogy is a response to portraits of people in the gallery's collection who have links to the borough of Ealing, which include Charlie Chaplin, Freddie Mercury, Dusty Springfield, recent Oscar-winner, Steve McQueen and the man who invented ways to make mauve, William Perkin.

Early on in the process, Eelyn identified three themes that seemed to sum up the achievements and characteristics of this group of 18 inpiring people. Endeavour, creativity and vision are explored in a trilogy of slow moving narrative portraits which reference constructed photography, allegorical painting and cinematic forms to create a powerful and engaging piece of work.

An Ealing Trilogy can be seen alongside the collection of portraits from 20th June - 21st September. Eelyn will giving a talk about the display and her work at 19.30 on 20th June as part of Late Shift. More details here.
