The Territories of Eile
The Territories of Eile includes a series of site-responsive performances and a digital film triptych (3m 56 sec, on loop).
Performances were enacted at Lough Melvin and the River Erne, both through which the border runs, a derelict former Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) barracks on the border, and in the roads, fields and hedgerows of the borderlands, across counties Leitrim and Cavan in the Irish Republic and County Fermanagh in Northern Ireland. The film’s three-parts juxtapose manipulated and abstracted versions of the performances with a loop of the mating ritual of a White Cryptic butterfly, and archive footage from the town of Belleek where some of the performances took place.
