Florence MarchalEntrez Lentement: L'obsession Eileen Gray


A jewel of modernist architecture and a symbol of freedom in the Roaring Twenties, E.1027 is probably the most famous house designed by a woman, Eileen Gray (1878-1976), an Irish architect and designer.
For a reason that only she can explain, this seaside house, perched on a rock beaten by the waves, was and still is, an object of desire and covetousness that has lost many, including Le Corbusier, the most illustrious of its visitors.
And here she is, as a keen observer, telling us about the human comedy that is played out within its walls. Through her story, we try to understand the obsession of those who have taken an interest in its existence. How far can such passion push one to overstep the limits of the other’s territory?

Enter Slowly is an exofiction, told not without malice, followed by a series of documents, including a chronology, as detailed as it is subjective, which allows us to understand the context and to grasp the impact that Le Corbusier’s polemical intervention had, thereby relegating Eileen Gray to the background.
