On Saturday I exhibited this piece in the Unmellow Collective Movies show at Arch Sixteen in Gateshead. Each artist selected a film that is celebrating an anniversary this year.
I was nervous about doing Alien, as it has been seemingly covered in alternative film posters from every conceivable angle, until I came up with this concept in the run up to the deadline. This layout could have been the cheesiest idea or the coolest, but it certainly wasn’t one I’d seen in my research. The response was great (the exhibition piece sold at the event) and so I hope I’ve pulled it off.
I’ve been taking part in group exhibitions like this for years and this is the first one in this country so I’ve been able to attend. It was a big thrill seeing it up on the wall.
