A blu-ray box set with an essay by Dr Lindsay Hallam. ‘Sick Monday’ was a celebration of the video nasty, it’s influence on contemporary video artists and its over looked critical capacity to express social and political truths in an exuberant style.
‘Sick Monday’ was curated by Dean Kenning, Vanessa Scully & Liam Scully, and featured new commissions by Beagles & Ramsay, Laure Prouvost, John Russell, Josephine Wood, David Burrows, Lee Holden, Jason File, Sophie Carapentian, Paul McCarthy, Ben Rivers and others. These new works were shown alongside the B-movie ‘Street Trash’ (dir. Jim Muro 1987) and other classic video nasties.
