Gue(ho)st House

House's new façade a ghostly apparition of its former life...

Tucked away right up in the north-east of France is a place called Delme, you may well have not heard of it. However, thanks to the daring work of artists Berdaguer & Péjus (Christophe and Marie respectively) – you may well be hearing a lot more of it. Tasked with reviving the grounds of the town’s Contemporary Art Center – the Synagogue of Delm, the duo drew from the chequered past of an out-building that was looking a little tired. Successively a prison, then burial chamber (told you it was chequered), the house is now a ghostly apparition of its former life; a hallucinogenic wonderland of twisted shapes and ghostly forms.

Aptly-named, the Gue(ho)st House now dominates the grounds of the Synagogue of Delm, an ominous spectre that’s part space-age futurism, part Hansel and Gretel nightmare fantasy. Creepy, brilliant, shocking and utterly spellbinding – Gue(ho)st House is a public commission that puts Delme firmly on the map.
