This work was commissioned by Gasworks Gallery, London, UK

Gas Board I: Embrace, 2004.

The first Gas Board commission coincided with the re-launch of the building. Perrier photographed local residents in the gallery during the refurbishment. Eileen was keen to invite people in so that they could see the building stripped bare and under construction and then come back to see the finished result! The photographic shoots took place on 3rd and 4th of April 2004 and 47 local residents took part. The images were printed by Eileen and distributed to the participants. Some of the images were displayed on The Gas Board throughout the first two months of Gasworks re-opening.
