SPOOKHOUSE location revealed

February 10, 2021 Events Calendar No Comments

Tickets for new multi-sensory art exhibition SPOOKHOUSE go on sale online tomorrow 9am Wednesday 10 February via mysteriousal.com/spookhouse. Sessions will run between Friday 19 – Sunday 28 March and artist and creator Mysterious Al (pictured below) is excited to reveal that SPOOKHOUSE will be housed within HoMie’s warehouse located at 35-53 Emma Street, Collingwood.

Visitors enter the huge nondescript warehouse and are faced with an impressive 12 metre by 4 metre set piece containing Al’s art exhibition ghost train. Two years in the making, the immersive ghost train ride will surprise at every twist and turn as the eyes of Al’s iconic mask sculptures move and illuminate.

Like a Pixar movie, Al’s art has different subtexts for adults and children alike. SPOOKHOUSE challenges the way we interpret and consume art by playing on the nostalgia of a traditional 1950’s ghost train. Materials such as papier mache, UV lights and plywood feature throughout, as well as new technologies self-taught by the artist such as robotics, projections, sound effects, and more.

“I’ve completely redesigned the ride inside and out. The show features paintings, projections and my first foray into sculpture — crudely-animated monsters made using traditional methods during lockdown.

I wanted to stay true to the original materials and methods of traditional ghost trains, so I made my props from papier mache and chicken wire. Just as I’d finished everything, rats infested my workshop and ate the lot. Turns out the traditional flour and water papier mache makes great rat poison. I had to start again which is why I ended up doing more mechanical pieces… And I used wood glue the second time.”

Fans of Al’s work will be delighted to explore the adjoining gallery space which showcases 70 new works that will be up for sale during the exhibition’s run, including limited-edition merchandise available only on site.

Tickets range from $8-$12 plus a booking fee. Book in early to avoid missing out.

  • General Admission $12
  • Concession $10
  • Children (aged 4 -14 years) $8
  • 3 and under free

Mysterious Al is a contemporary artist from London UK; living and working in Melbourne, Australia since 2011. Al rose to fame in the early 2000’s through the explosion of street art, developing a notoriety for his colourful, energetic works. Al’s current paintings are based on ancient tribal masks, reimagined in wild contemporary colours. His work is striking and fun. But look closer and you’ll see fragility, vulnerability and pieces that poke fun at man’s psyche and a fragile sense of self. Mysterious Al has shown extensively at galleries and art fairs worldwide and has collaborated with major brands such as Levis, Vans, Carhartt, Adidas, Eastpak and more.

HoMie is a Melbourne-based streetwear label and not for profit – 100% of HoMie’s profits go towards achieving its mission in supporting young people affected by homelessness or hardship to equip them with the skills, confidence, and experiences to be more work-ready and better prepared for their future.

SPOOKHOUSE is Mysterious Al’s most ambitious project yet and a world first concept. The reimagined fairground ghost train journeys through a labyrinth of paintings, sculptures, and motorised installations created by the artist. Al presents his largest show to date with over 70 new works across the ghost train and adjoining gallery space, challenging the way we engage and interpret.
