Video's

Guy Vercruysse explains why Reject The Sickness collaborates with Malika Maria for the creation of their videoclips:

β€œI met Malika 6 years ago at a party where we both were playing. Immediately I saw a connection with our music. The images she used in her video projections were psychotic, repetitive and disturbing. Observing Malika’s images, I had the same anxious feeling which I get writing lyrics for the band. We started talking and have been working together ever since. We have already performed together live and on these occasions magic rises from the ashes of despair. It’s our goal to show this cooperation all across the land!”

β€œOur lyrics are about confused and abused teenagers and all the anger and emotions that go hand in hand with that horror. As the vocalist, my job as a social worker inspires me to write fictional stories about outcast youth and how they get back at society and at their molesters. When a human being is in pain or distress, his or her thoughts are often chaotic and thought patterns go haywire. Yet, most of the time, actions and retributions stay limited to the imagination because the victim is too weak, too sad or simply too disconnected from society.”

Malika Maria at wOrk about her work as a VJ and an artist:

β€œIn the end we’re all just animals. Intrigued by the dark feelings harboured by human beings, I lay bare the obsessions and addictions that we all carry inside. We watch horror movies yet there’s really no need as the world and the reality that surrounds us all too often exceeds the cruelty of such movies. Consequently, I ask myself how far I can push the limit of the atrocities portrayed in my work as a video artist and how much is my audience willing to undergo. In my quest to answer these questions, I’m guided by my firm convictions: artists never die; madness is female and art should be everything while in the end it is nothing.”
