    The House of Horrors
    May 29, 2015 - May 15, 2016
    Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris, Paris, France

    The Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris pays tribute to Sturtevant by presenting her monumental work The House of Horrors for one year beginning on 29 May 2015.

    The House of Horrors, a life-size ghost train where visitors can ride in carts,

    is the last major installation of Sturtevant. The donation made by the artist complements the permanent collections of the Musée d’Art moderne de la Ville de Paris

    With The House of Horrors Sturtevant wanted to create an installation in which figures of contemporary art history like The Painter, McCarthy or Divine would be seen amongst bats, Frankenstein and other well known monsters.

    Spanning across 300m2, House of Horrors explores the excess of our contemporary era dominated by entertainment, violence and anti-intellectualism. Sturtevant accompanies visitors through a series of experiences of fear connected to each other in an amusing way.
