Faces: Unique Documentary Mapping Lives of Portsmouth Inhabitants
An ambitious new film developed through a series of workshops with Portsmouth’s local people is led by the internationally-acclaimed video-performance art collective Wilson-Eflerová. Participants will have a chance to re-imagine the lives of ordinary citizens of Portsmouth which were shaped by the eve of World War I in the summer of 1914. The project will culminate in a monumental outdoor video installation in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
Faces will be showcased as part of this summer’s Portsmouth Festivities,
the city’s annual arts extravaganza. For more information visit www.portsmouthfestivities.co.uk.
There will also be other screenings at venues across the city and the film will be distributed online through popular social media sites.

Kye Wilson (UK) and Helena Eflerová (CZ) are intermedia artists who have been
collaborating since 2008 and have exhibited nationally and internationally. They combine performance
and video mediums within an installation display context to create inter-disciplinary
artworks that explore themes of embodiment and the human condition. Their goal is
to engage with diverse audiences, challenging public perception on contemporary
art through the use of temporary non-interventional media.
Portsmouth Festivities is producing Faces in partnership with National Museum of the Royal Navy, with support from Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, The Portsmouth Grammar School and Art Council England.
