Christophe Berdaguer and Marie Péjus: «Gue(ho)st House»

5 Jan

The heart of the project is the transformation of an existing building that was once a prison, then a school and then a funeral home. Christophe Berdaguer and Marie Péjus kept this context in mind, the artists used the memory of the place and transformed the building into a ghost house, a veritable architectural phantasmagoria, which the title echoes. Gue(ho)st House borrows Marcel Duchamp’s wordplay: «a Guest + A Host = A Ghost».

Thinking about this ghost thing a touch more intensively we came to the conclusion that this building reminds us a little bit of Barbapapa’s house.
