Guest of Honour:
The exhibition took as its starting point the book "House of Psychotic Women - An autobiographical topography of female neurosis in horror and exploitation films" (FAB Press, 2012), by Canadian author, Kier-La Janisse.
The work of the artists is primarily inspired by several films selected from the vast canon of psychotic women in cinema; the female protagonists and their impaired contact with reality becoming the main focus of the drawings, prints, writings and murals on show.
The author Kier-La Janisse will be present at the opening and for the event "An evening with Kier-La Janisse", as a special guest of the Adamastor Studios, in partnership with the MOTELx festival.
