Falke Pisano (b. 1978, Holland)


Pisano is working with the relation between text, context, objects and time. In the Ladonia Biennial  she has made a video work on a subject that she has been engaged in earlier. The project E-1027 brings up topics like modernism, feminism and rivalry but also the relation between text and possible objects.


The Irish architect and designer Eileen Gray (1878-1976) built her house E-1027 with her lover and designer Jean Badovici in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin on the French Côte d’Azur between 1926–29. Her friend Le Corbusier was very impressed by this piece of modernist architecture and became obsessed with it. During a stay there he added rather ill fitting paintings on the wall and later he built a house of his own overlooking Gray’s villa. When Le Corbusier died in 1965 he was swimming in the sea directly in front of the house. The letters and numbers in E-1027 is a code for the builders: E = Eileen, 10 = J(ean) 2 = B(adovici), 7 = G(ray). Gray most well known piece is probably the Bibendum chair which can be seen in the film in the living-room of E-1027.


The film begins with a quotation from Jean-Luc Godard’s Band ā Part (1964) but not with the original music. The story of Gray and Le Corbusier is turned into a small soap opera which ends with one of Pisano’s text readings.

 E-1027 is shown in the New Museum in Ladonia.
