Daydreaming with Stanley Kubrick : Somerset House

Review of Daydreaming with Stanley Kubrick at Somerset House

This weekend a heatwave has hit London. It’s strange to have my pale, hairy little limbs on show for some undoubtably much needed vitamin D.

In between a few work meetings on Sunday, I decided to do something spontaneous and I ventured to Somerset House to see the Daydreaming with Stanley Kubrick exhibition, a trip I highly recommend.

I only had 40 minutes to kill so raced through it much quicker than the recommended 1 hr 30 minute time, but I still managed to get some amazing new insights into the mind of the crazy, love-to-hate filmmaking genius Stanley Kubrick.

I took a few pictures, which I’m fairly certain was allowed… You can also see a few cheeky videos on my Instagram here.

The amazing works consist of a bunch of contemporary immersive mediums including installation, VR, film (ft. actors like Cate Blanchett and Joanna Lumley) and musical pieces (ft. Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter) + various conventional and abstract portraiture,  all showcasing works inspired by Stanley Kubrick.

I definitely have a little more respect and intrigue for the director after seeing the way he has inspired so many rad pieces.

Well worth the 13 pound entry price. Check it out if you get the chance!
