Marcus Coatesʼ practice questions how we perceive human nature through imagined non-human situations. An extensive knowledge and understanding of British wildlife has led him to create interpretations of the natural world and its evolving relationship with society.

An aspect of Coates’ recent work sees him as a ‘useful social agent’ or problem solver. Through self-designed, sometimes shaman-like rituals informed by traditional cultures he consults a non-conscious world of animals and birds to seek relevant information.

This is the most comprehensive publication on the work of British artist, Marcus Coates to date.
