Gue(ho)st House by Berdaguer And Péjus

French artists Christophe Berdaguer and Marie Péjus have converted an old house in France into a visitor centre by giving it a ghostly cloak of polystyrene and paint. The building, which was formerly used as a prison house, a school and a funeral home, is located in the grounds of the Synagogue de Delme contemporary art centre, a gallery inside a 19th century synagogue. Blocks of polystyrene create the chunky shapes on the facade, and are covered with resin and a layer of white paint. The artists imagine the building as a “ghost-house” and have named it Gue(ho)st House, in reference to the phrase invented by Marcel Duchamp “A GUEST + A HOST = A GHOST”.
