MOONSEED at the Spur Battery opened to live performances from the MOONSEED Collective on both 21 and 22 August, 4pm-5pm each day. The Installation will be open until 30th August.
Beyond that, visitors are invited to explore the space during exhibition times from 23 August, 10am-5pm. Discover further live experimental performances from Lunatraktors and Minimus. See full programme details for individual days.
Long-term collaborators Luke Birch, Anna Braithwaite and Helen Lindon (all based in Kent, UK) joined forces with Canadian dance artists Olivia C. Davies and Daisy Thompson to research and develop new ways of collaborating remotely following the cycles of the moon as their guide.
MOONSEED is an art installation that synchronises simultaneous live performances from around the world with pre-recorded digital artefacts to create new rituals dedicated to the moon and its cycles. At a time when space travel has become the theme park ride of choice for oligarchs and the United States’ deregulated entrepreneurial activity threatens to strip the moon of her mineral assets, the MOONSEED Collective embark on an urgent attempt to reclaim the mystery, beauty and splendour of our lunar body.
Venue: Spur Battery, Fort Amherst, Khartoum Road, Chatham ME4 4UB

Luke Ahmet collaborated with composer and singer Anna Braithwaite, and fine artist Helen Lindon.
Through sound and images, they worked together to explore looping and patterns in our own behavioural movement, what can trigger a loop within us from movement, and how it feels to be left out of a loop.

NEW APPOINTMENT WITH DAD
Since the 1970s I have been a part of the Green Movement and over the last ten years my art practice has been to make a body of work about Climate Change and Sea Level Rise. The scientific facts are so many, so difficult to comprehend, are so changeable and so frightening that they seem too big to absorb, so I strive to embody them experientially, as if like Turner, I were strapped to the mast of a ship sailing into the apocalypse.
Sublimity is reunion with the spiritual self through the contemplation of nature - through making my work I endeavour to make visual the effects on us of future climate change.
