The second instalment of The Death Book is dedicated to acclaimed artist and filmmaker Bruce LaBruce’s archive of rarely published or previously unpublished work characterized by morbid fascinations. Bringing this body of work together for the first time, the book combines LaBruce’s performances, actions, film stills and photography that explicitly outline his obsessions, with never-before exhibited archival works from projects including Hustler White, Otto or Up with Dead People, and L.A. Zombie.
Death Book II is edited as loosely connected vignettes, characterised by horror, the carnage accelerated rather than overcome, questioning existing values, hierarchies, and perceptions of good and evil. With appearances by Francois Sagat, Tony Ward, Kembra Pfahler, Slava Mogutin, Genesis P-Orridge and Dash Snow among others.
