Can Lis

After architect Jørn Utzon had left the Sydney Opera project in 1966, he resettled on the Balearic island of Mallorca and set his mind to creating Can Lis, a house completed in 1972 which he named after his wife.

The film was created during a weeks artist’s residency at the house in November 2015. Inspired by the experience of solitude and proximity to nature, the film explores the monastic and monumental qualities of this melancholic retreat.
