The Upcoming LP from the ever-influential Cate Le Bon Crab Day will be released on Friday (15th April) and will surely be another art-filled and endearing piece of work, of which Le Bon continues to create upon every offering. She has shot a short film in Berlin with Turner Prize nominee Phil Collins for us all to enjoy.
The slightly odd short film has everything you’d expect from Le Bon and a Turner Prize nominee. Cue a man dribbling over his chest, a dance routine and some smashed pomegranates. Usual stuff really.
“My desire was not to work with any artist on visuals for ‘Crab Day’, but to work with Phil. He creates a landscape that is anarchic and wide-open through careful consideration and exploration. There is no map. It is an empowering isolation that fills me up when I see his work. It’s beautiful, strange and inescapably human. To have him take ‘Crab Day’ and reimagine it as a visual piece is an absolute honour,” she said. “No stone was left unturned and the friendship that we have fostered over the years was the anchor of the collaboration. He has made a coat that we can both wear.”
