Staged for one night only, House of Pleasure took over an East Melbourne terrace house, presenting 10 artists response to the pursuit of pleasure. Inspired by The Marquis De Sade and Pier Paolo Pasolini 1976 film Salo, each artist engaged with the concept of pleasure in their own physical and psychological creative space. The rooms of the house hid a multitude of mixed media installations, while an animalistic live art performance in the exterior garden explored the essence of pleasure.
This project was Spill Collective's first work and set the tone for Spill's working aesthetic, with its strong emphasis on collaboration, experimentation and invasion, and desire to break bonds with established art practices.
Artists included Allison Wiltshire, Chloe Boreham, Oliver Hunter, Hannah French, Travis Englfield, Alexander Hamilton-Smith, Ursula Spears, Theresa Harrison, Adelaide Reif
