10104 Angelo View Drive

At the center of the filminstallation “10104 Angelo View Drive” stands a modernistic single-family homestead designed by the American architect John Lautner, which has been serving, in numerous Hollywood productions, as a place that harbours scenes of “evil”.

Margreiter approaches this constructed nightmare of the Western nuclear family from several perspectives. In short filmed sequences she shows unexpected ways of utilizing or socially sharing this building, while simultaneously questioning the conventions of the cinematic representation.
