'DREAMS OF LE CORBUSIER', 2015
The video was filmed on the roof of the 'Unité d'habitation', in Marseille. Modernist residential housing design principle developed by Le Corbusier with the collaboration of painter-architect Nadir Afonso. It was built between 1947 and 1952. It proved enormously influential and is often cited as the initial inspiration of the Brutalist architectural style and philosophy. The building took Le Corbusier’s most famous quote – that a house is “a machine for living in” – and applied it to an entire community. The result was a self-contained concrete vessel Inspired and structured like an ocean liner. The old lady seems as inhabitant on the wheelchair goes around on the rooftop of the building. How long has she been living there? Sound of waves from the Mediterranean accompanied to her movement. This mystical loop movement brings the viewers on the thin line between reality and dreams, pain and the absurd, between Utopianism to the Existential situation.
