Glasgow based artist Duncan Campbell has made a new limited edition print for Chisenhale Gallery, to coincide with the premiere at the gallery of his major new film Make it new John, co-commissioned by Chisenhale Gallery; Film and Video Umbrella; Tramway, Glasgow and The Model, Sligo. Make it new John tells the story of the DeLorean car, its creator John DeLorean and the workers of the Belfast-based car plant who built it. The film deftly contrasts the DeLorean dream with its spectacular downfall during a critical period in Northern Ireland’s history, and the canonisation of the car – the DMC12 – as a symbol of the American myth of mobility. Campbell's edition depicts a photographic image of the DeLorean car overlaid with a sinuous black screenprint.
