Whilst recording wartime events Lee Miller captured womens’ roles in image and word from fashion to the work of the WRNS, concentration camp victims to nurses and many more. Her story and that of the women she encountered is told through Miller’s own images presented by her son Antony Penrose and Miller’s words spoken by her granddaughter Ami Bouhassane.
The dramatised performance is set to a continuous stream of images and lasts 1 hour 20 minutes with an interval.
The presentation is part of a grand event at Farleys from 6.30-9.30pm, that includes the exhibition openings of Grim Glory. Lee Miller’s Britain at War and Dreaming The Found, an exhibition of works by Kathleen Fox. Kathleen will be in attendance to talk about her exhibition. The event will also include the book launch of the newly re-published; ‘Roland Penrose – The Friendly Surrealist.’ Both Antony Penrose and Ami Bouhassane will be available to chat and to sign books.
