"The architecture at the center of Laura Gannon’s film is the building E1027. Built in 1929 by the Irish designer Eileen Gray, it was designed as a monument to her then lover, the architect and writer Jean Badovici. From footage filmed in and around the now-dilapidated modernist villa, Gannon captures not only its fractured architecture but also its interwoven threads of mythology and past human presence".
(I worked with Artist/Curator Charlie last year on the Exhibition Road festival . He created a reflective installation of mirrors that I liked a lot. As did many of the festival-goers that day).
