The structure is built from harvested red wood trees from a wood in Wales belonging to the artists. Originally commissioned for the Wales Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2007, the building has been adapted for Eastside Projects as a long term commitment to exploring the nature of artworks within the space. New features within the structure include a kitchen, desks, shelving and a larger entrance. The artists will present a series of puppet shows within ‘Pleasure Island’ over the next few years with the first performance at the launch of Eastside Projects on 26 September 2008.
