Christophe Berdaguer & Marie Péjus

Lives and works in Marseilles

Christophe Berdaguer and Marie Péjus explore the interactions between brain, body, environment and constructed space, materialised by varied forms (volumes, projections, hybrid constructions, etc.).

Their phenomenological reflection on space and the psyche, on a biological relation with the world, draws on various fields (psychoanalysis, neurology, architecture, parapsychology, etc.) treated by the artists in a both deep and distanced manner. Drawing inspiration from the counter-utopias of radical Italian architects and designers, Berdaguer & Péjus perform mental transpositions of architecture. The mental landscapes created incorporate behavioural changes caused by psychological disturbances, the taking of chemical substances or the effect of stimuli on our senses.
