In this instance, Pirates have taken complete artistic control of the old building and intend to shape the project around Clerkenwell’s printing history – the site itself was an old factory building specializing in silver lithography.
The idea is all about type, be it modern and bright or traditional and sophisticated. Everywhere you look will be covered in words and letters of all sorts of shapes and sizes; some painted, some in relief and some full on 3D. And that’s just for starters; the toilets will be transformed into an interactive blackboard, free standing cut perspex letters will grow out of walls and upbeat catch- phrases will cover every inch of the bar. There will be mock printing presses spewing out reams of paper. Words will shout out from every surface, all making Pop-up Pirates a walk in wardrobe of letterforms.
With Pop-up Pirates and the CIA, Mothership Group is once again displaying the collaborative outlook and verve that has given all its projects the story and atmosphere that have proved so successful. And this time, they may be pushing the boundaries further than ever…Plus the site’s got a 4am licence so expect some full on parties programmed by The Mothership Group, Pirates and Session Noisses.Read more
