Movie Martyrdom: Derek Jarman's Sebastiane plus other visual delights
- Film and Screenings
This deluxe edition of NOVA NIGHTS is a collaborative film night by BILLY CHAINSAW and artists ESPIRA & MANKO, the curators of ‘ARROWS OF DESIRE’, a group art show celebrating the contemporary artist’s interpretation of Saint Sebastian – which runs at The Horse Hospital 4 – 21 July 2019. www.arrowsofdesire.co.uk
Saint Sebastian has long been a source of fascination to artists, from his original religious context as a Roman martyr, through various incarnations as plague protector, sport patron to gay icon. His stark image of baroque suffering and defiance mixed with androgynous eroticism has had a particular impact on counterculture groups.
