The Ghost
Past and Now

The Ghost is a building that has been coated in thick white layers of polystyrene, making it look almost like a cartoon home. The Building used to be a prison, school and funeral home and now functions as a striking gallery and visitor centre in Delme, France. Artists Christophe Berdaguer and Marie Péjus created the structure’s façade.

The name is inspired by de artist Marcel Duchamp’s wordplay project: A Guest + A Host = A Ghost.

I like the way the artist didn’t destroy the building but just created a layer to pull over. This way it gets a new look and feel without creating something totally new!
