The Price of Desire, the much anticipated feature film by director Mary McGuckian, explores the amazing life story of Eileen Gray. "More than a movie, more of a movement," explains McGuckian, the film shares the controversial story of how Le Corbusier effaced and defaced Eileen Gray's moral right to be recognized as the author of her work and alludes to a larger universal female experience while cinematically evoking the essential aesthetic of Eileen Gray. Starring Orla Brady as Eileen Gray and featuring Francesco Scianna and Vincent Perez, with Alanis MOrrissette and Dominique Pinon, The Price of Desire will premiere at the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival in March 2015.
Gray Matters is the story of Eileen Gray, the 20th Century artist whose vision, imagination and sensibility changed the way we live, within both houses and their furniture. The documentary is a historical, scholarly and cinematic investigation of the life of one of the most significant, but otherwise little known contemporary artists.
Gray's work will be included at a new permanent furniture gallery at London's Victoria & Albert Museum.
The Centre Pompidou is also currently holding a major retrospective on Eileen Gray. The show includes several period rooms, including e.1027.
