With the days drawing longer and the evenings warmer, Somerset House has cleared its courtyard, transforming it into an open-air cinema. Any remnants of the winter’s ice skating rink will have all but disappeared, leaving nothing but distant memories.
Returning for their second year to Somerset House’s summer film season, Print Club London has been commissioned by Film4 to create a series of limited-edition screenprints, celebrating the Summer Screen’s tenth year of showing films under the stars.
Dalston-based Print Club London is a membership-based screenprinting club for designers and artists, which also offers screenprinting lessons and hosts regular gallery shows.
The collection curated for the Summer Screen festival have each been inspired by the season’s line-up of films – which include old favourites such as ET and new cult films like Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers – and use particular scenes, characters and even quotes to create a unique interpretation of each film.
Artists commissioned by Print Club London for Film4 include Rose Blake, Conecepcion Studios, Cassandra Yap, Hattie Stewart, Casper Williamson, Kate Gibb, Joe Wilson and HelloVon.
The prints are on show at the West Wing Galleries at Somerset House from 31 July to 25 August 2014. They can be purchased there or online from Print Club London and Somerset House. Each costs £45.
