HAUNTED HOUSES

Emelie Carlén

SPANISH PREMIÈRE

SYNOPSIS

Architect Eileen Gray’s house E1027, built between 1926 and 1929, and Adolf Loos’s Villa Müller, built between 1927 and 1930, bear striking similarities. Much has been written about the two modernist buildings and their architects, but they are not often cited together in architectural history books. However, both Gray and Loos have been associated with the Swiss architect Le Corbusier: in the case of Adolf Loos, for having been considered his parallel or the architect who matched him in fame and success; in the case of Eileen Gray, for having been ‘artistically haunted’ by Le Corbusier’s presence in her house E1027, where he painted a series of murals while staying as a guest there. A documentary that questions the influences and merits we attribute to architects according to their gender and highlights the perpetuation of the hegemonic male narrative in the writing of architectural history.

Director

Emelie Carlén is a visual artist living in Stockholm, Sweden. She holds degrees in Fine Arts from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, the Academy of Fine Arts Umeå and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Emelie’s work questions the generalisation of power structures in relation to our history and its interpretation. By means of research and texts, she examines collective and individual ideals in relation to the time we live in and our environment. Through the creation of videos and sculptures, she explores the thin line between the material and the immaterial, the real and the fictitious.
