The New National Museum of Monaco (NMNM) has been hosting an exhibition of photographs by Kasper Akhøj, Welcome (To The Teknival), dedicated to Villa E-1027 in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, since early summer at Villa Sauber.
The exhibition has now been enriched with new photographs, taken in July of this year by Akhøj, which ends a work begun in 2008. The public can now admire 63 shots that are an echo to the portfolio made by the architect Eileen Gray during the construction of the iconic villa E-1027, the summer hideaway house designed by Eileen Gray for Jean Badovici between 1926 and 1929.
Kasper Akhøj also presents a new film entitled C2RMF75602, produced by the NMNM, in the video room of the Villa Sauber, recounting the restoration of a 16th-century painting entitled Portrait de Femme, attributed to Titian.
This film, shot in 16 mm, creates magnificent links to Welcome (To The Teknival), both of which pose many questions inherent in the conservation and restoration of heritage sites such as the Eileen Gray villa.
The Welcome (To The Teknival) exhibition runs until January 8, 2018. Villa Sauber is open daily from 10 to 6 pm; admission is €6 or free on Sundays.
