Antebellum, known as the only fetish art gallery in the USA, (perhaps the world), continues its assault on the mundane with Splatter, the first art exhibition to explore the passions & obsessions of images of chaos, blood lust, and things that go bump in the night.

Throughout history, the most famous people have been presidents, actors and- murderers! Sexuality and death are also historically linked and romanticized.

The greatest stories ever told are about tragedy and murder - Macbeth, Gilles De Rais, Jack the Ripper, Bluebeard, Sweeney Todd, the Mason family, the list is endless.

French surrealist writer Georges Bataille once wrote each orgasm is like a little death. American writer Truman Capote created his career from a novel about serial killers: In Cold Bood.

Iconic film director Alfred Hitchcock explored the relation between sex and death throughout his entire body of work.

Why are we drawn to murder? What does it say about society obsessed with love, sex, death & violence?
