Viddy Horrorshow (VHS) is a regular film event at TACO!, devised by artists Frances Scott and Mat Jenner where each screening is selected by invited contributors to form an expanding programme of moving image.
VHS screenings are broad and non-hierarchical in their approach. Selected content can include any form of moving image - from music videos, trailers and artists’ films to commercials, archive footage, documentaries and occasional features.
In the second of the series titled ‘Home Invasion’ artist and film maker Vanessa Scully has been invited to present a selection of moving image material including artist films by Katharine Meynell,Vanessa Scully and John Smith
VHS takes its title as an acronym from Anthony Burgess’ novel ‘A Clockwork Orange (1961) which is written using nadsat vocabulary – a fictional language of ‘a not-too-distant future’. ‘Viddy’ means to see or look, and ‘horrorshow’ indicates ‘well’ or ‘good’.
