VIVID PROJECTS / 16 MINERVA WORKS / 158 FAZELEY ST / B5 5RS 21-23 JUNE, 1200 -1700
Embrace your dark side and experience the HER HORROR season in June. Expect a darkly ecstatic blend of ritual, body horror and transformation as we celebrate the bicentenary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Featuring the Visceristahood (Kate Spence, Sarah Walden, Siân Macfarlane and Vicky Roden) and Ferric Lux (22/06).
Vicky Roden focuses on mythology, both real and fabricated, together with examining traditionally powerful female figures.
Siân Macfarlane’s new work, ‘A fever from the milk’, takes a phrase from Mary Shelley’s diary, in a piece that considers creation, the body fluids of femininity, life giving milk and blood, and the fear and disgust of such liquids expressed through Vampire cinema.
Sarah Walden explores experimental film (analogue and digital) and glitch methodologies. Kate Spence utilises her own body to exceed limits – both physical and fabulated.
FERRIC LUX PRESENTS A LINE BETWEEN THE HEAVENS & THE SOIL
FRIDAY 22 JUNE / 20.00 / FREE
Exponent of blackened techno and ritual Ferric Lux returns to unleash an unholy mix of ambient noise, esoteric techno and black metal, scored over distorted, flickering images received from another plane. An event not for the faint hearted.

SATURDAY 23 JUNE / 15.00 – 17.00 / FREE
Performances and interventions from the Visceristahood will occur during the closing hours of HER HORROR … don’t be scared, now.
