Love in a Cold Climate is artist Michael Currran’s first feature length video.
Taking the form of a fractured journey the work explores notions of coldness, the act of storytelling and loneliness, all haunted by the spectre of Hans Christian Anderson’s Snow Queen. Whilst seeking the actress Natayla Klimova, who played the role of the Snow Queen in Grennadi Kazinski’s 1966 LENFILM production, the artist drifts through a series of episodic encounters which all strangely reflect upon his concerns. Comprised of telephone recitations, fairy story, chance meetings and weather changes Love in a Cold Climate emerges as an essay in love and longing.
