Hexus Journal Launch
Thursday, 14 May, 7:00 – 10:00 pm
Come one, come all – come, come, come to the singular launch of the first issue of Hexus!
Hexus is a new journal placed somewhere between the boundaries of experimental fiction and art writing, illustration and fine art. whist maintaining a focus firmly on horror – positioning itself somewhere between Hammer Horror schlock and The Shock of the New, it’s aim is to offer a contemporary perspective on a much-maligned genre.
The first issue, The New Black, dwells on (and in) the darkness of dissolution – of body, mind, and spirit. Within its pages you’ll find writing and artwork from an international and highly acclaimed line up, all dealing in their own way with the loss of itself -be it through mental deliquescence, minimalistic bleeding out, the ever-narrowing strictures of power, the price of fame, spectral malevolence, Dadaistic tumbles to the void, or good old-fashioned violence.
