Perfectionism, creativity, and visual genius, can be cinematically speaking enclosed in two simple words: Stanley Kubrick.
A snapshot of all these qualities is offered by the exhibition Stanley Kubrick: New Perspectives (August 8th- 27th September 2014), at the Work Gallery in London. The exhibition puts the focus on a few distinctive characteristics of the director, such as attention to details, and development of filmic spaces, such as being extremely realistic and credible even in a fantasy setting.
Three key spaces are explored in the exhibition: the Discovery spaceship, from 2001: A Space Odyssey, the Overlook Hotel from The Shining and Hue City, from Full Metal Jacket. Each of these three filmic spaces shows the interaction and the relationship of humans with their environment, often alienating and raw, in which the psychological factor is often superimposed on the physical environment.
Through original documents, personal notes and photographs (granted by the Stanley Kubrick Archive at the London College of Communication, University of the Arts of London), we can see the innovative techniques, designs and all the meticulous research that Kubrick used to create these spaces, in which viewers will find themselves immersed not only visually but also emotionally.
The attention to details was the basis of the work. It involved the lighting, editing, photography and the way in which the actors settled down in the sets during the shooting.
The work done by this independent gallery has been impeccable, and we have to congratulate the curator Marianne Templeton and her staff for what has been done, showing us that even a small gallery can give birth to the little gem that is the exhibition on Stanley Kubrick.
To sum it up, I would recommend to visit this exhibition to all lovers - and not - of this cinematic legend.
