PLEASURE ISLAND

The PLEASURE ISLAND pavilion —51°13'30.3"N, 2°53'48.7"E— is located on the beach close to the dyke and near the work 'Umbra' from Herlinde Seynaeve. The cabin is a 30 min walk from the train station and easily accessible by tram or car. The standalone cabin is recognisable from the dyke from both directions.

The pavilion encourages and incorporates the connection between the general public and the activities usually taking place in the art gallery context. The cabin lives and evolves throughout the changeable seaside environment challenged by winds, waters and various publics. The structure of the pavilion is designed to be sustainable with the further possibility of reassembling it in different locations after the first season (April to October 2021). The PLEASURE ISLAND pavilion is a playful research concerned by the position and influence of artistic endeavors in and around the community; a suggestion to what a beach cabin can bend, architecturally and functionally.
