Maison Paris was a series of 5 edible structures, created for a private event in Paris.
Based in Paris, Céline Pelcé works as a food artist. She began working with food while working as interior designer : she considers both food and architecture as elements built on a same action : ingestion, extraction of matter and techniques, in different transformation processes. And this, in order to respond to basic human needs : housing and eating. She now uses food as a material to build artistic experiences : food enables her to express the poetic of territories, culinary rituals, and craft techniques. Her research grows in collaboration with chefs and craftsmen, with their codes, and rules. The researches are then staged and proposed to the public, as guests. These experiences consist in food installations, performances, or orchestrated meals. In each of these format, Céline uses food to convey a story, and the guest is invited to embed it, by the act of eating. The experience ends in the disapperance. These situations include a dimension of hospitality : as the piece starts to be shared and eaten, each guest has the room to be a part of it, and to make the piece his own.
