"t's beautiful, strange and inescapably human..."
Cate Le Bon

Sometimes it's best for the artists to simply explain themselves.

Cate Le Bon has just unveiled her new video 'Crab Day', and it's an evocative watch.

Directed by Phil Collins - no, not that one - it veers between absolute sense and absolute nonsense.

Cate Le Bon explains: “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. 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."

Check it out now.
