Pleasure Garden at Deene Park

Set throughout the gardens of Deene Park, a 14th century manor house in rural Corby, Pleasure Garden is an exhibition of new and existing works exploring the friction created when desire in the natural and human worlds entwine.

Admission to both the House and Garden is by pre-booked tickets only via deenepark.com

Historic Houses and RHS members can select a free ticket.

In considering how we gather and extract from nature for our own pleasure – to fantasise, decorate, bask and escape – the exhibition pays close attention to the landscape’s own amorous agency; an equal and opposite will that meets ours from the other direction.

Through a series of installations within the gardens, these artists investigate the melting point between bodies and elements – a specific chemistry that gives rise to new landscapes, textures and strategies for survival. Emerging from the heat of summer sun, from manicured lawns and from the strata of deep, excavated time, these works join the familiar elements of the natural world in a thorny, generative romance.
