Bêka & Lemoine

"The Emotion of Space"

September 3rd – 9th 2017

The Tutors

Artists, filmmakers, producers and publishers, Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine have been working together for the past 10 years mainly focusing their research on experimenting new narrative and cinematographic forms in relation to contemporary architecture.

Since 2007 they have been developing a film series entitled “Living Architectures”, widely acclaimed as “a new form of criticsm” (Mark), which “has deeply changed the way of looking at architecture” (Domus).

“Koolhaas Houselife”, internationally renowned as the “architecture cult movie” (El Pais), is probably the most famous film of their series, featuring Guadalupe - the irresistible housekeeper of the Bordeaux House built by Rem Koolhaas.

Awarded Game Changers in 2015 by Metropolis Magazine, selected by the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York) as one of the “most exciting and critical design project of the year 2016”, the complete work of Bêka & Lemoine has been acquired in 2016 by the Museum of Modern Art in New-York (MoMA) for their permanent collection.

Their films have been widely shown in some of the most prestigious international cultural institutions and events such as the Venice Architecture Biennale, Centre Pompidou (Paris), Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Palais de Tokyo (Paris), Barbican Centre (London), CCA (Montreal) and Fondazione Prada (Milan, Italy).
