LUNA
Anti-cool

As part of the launch of our new project website Annex, CCA presents LUNA, a new series of works by the artist Anti-cool.

CCA would have worked with Anti-cool via our Creative Lab residency programme in April 2020. Following conversations over the last year, we’re delighted to work with them through the release of LUNA via CCA Annex.

LUNA will be available to view on CCA Annex from 6pm on 29 April for eight weeks, prior to the release of the next part of the project, LUNA 2.

Full-length film LUNA, by artist Anti-cool

LUNA creates a journey through the cyclical nature of life on a human and mythic level. Over two years, Anti-cool documented wild amphibians and reptiles, hoping to capture the sense of mystery surrounding life under the full moon, its effects on nature, the emergence of amphibians and even changes in human behaviour.

The piece features recurring circular motifs that culminate in an abstract form of sexual activity mirroring lunar influence on the natural world. A mythic character is introduced in the form of a non-human alchemist with desires to effect changes through elemental processes. Alongside documentary footage, Anti-cool employs a multi-layered soundtrack to explore the shifts between the differing metaphors of the film.
