2:00 - 6.30 pm
Capc Museum, Bordeaux, France.
‘In the Barbe à Papa exhibition, in front of her life-size billboard (see Dark Places: part II project), the artist Cécile di Giovanni sets up the site of a convention for an afternoon at the Capc Museum in Bordeaux, France. With American Ghost Walk, Frédéric Rochette (Choeur de Gamers), Escape Hunt Bordeaux, Ray Keim and Alexandra Midal.
From this stand will follow a series of activities and discussions related to the murderous hotel of Doctor H. H. Holmes, the first serial killer in the United States: video game, escape game, model building, reading club, guided tour. Thus will emerge the outlines of a temporary community (a fan club) questionning the rewriting of history through games and derivative products.’

Two different paper models were distributed and offered to the audience to be built (pictures above): while the model designed by Ray Keim is a free interpretation of H. H. Holmes original hotel, the other model imagined by Cécile di Giovanni is a free interpretation of the present building - a post office - that now sits where the hotel once stood.
