Ship of Fools press exhibition: Fucking Time by Sheppard and Farrell

 Our rather splendid Fucking Time from the 1990s was displayed behind glass and the images aren't as clear as they might be. But you can get the idea: it's a work about or round and about the life and works of John Wilmot, Rochester. He can be seen on the right below holding the poet's bays over his pet monkey. The pictures are as rude as the poems (texts are republished in Twentieth Century Blues and History or Sleep). Something about his abject view of the bodily reflected Thatcherite politics or my visceral reaction to it.
