Back for the second year, our Summer Screen Prints show features some of the world’s best artists matched with some of the best cult films. Working in collaboration with Film4 and Somerset House, we have produced all of the limited edition two-layer prints which are on display at our exhibition at Somerset House from the 31st July to the 20th August 2014.
Each of the 16 artists that we have chosen has taken inspiration from the films on show this season and has re-imagined these beautiful posters.
“The Great Beauty is one of those movies that is so beautiful, poetical and visually mesmerising, that they become an experience, something that changes you a tiny bit. The film has a very fluid and continuous pace, so instead of interrupting the rhythm focussing on one scene, I chose to draw from my memories of the movie as a whole. It’s more an evocation of a recollection of moments that form the final image. The movie opens with a quote by Céline evoking life as an imaginary journey, I wanted to represent an imaginary structure/place that could evoke the whole movie through key elements, the crumbling eternal city and love, mirages, fragility, melancholia.” – Lucille Clerc
