Urban/Wild presents a series of expeditions. From Los Angeles to Death Valley, from Rio de Janeiro to Amazonas, from Edinburgh to Rannoch Moor, the artist explores the places where urban space meets the wilderness. "...I had this idea about opposites - urban space on one hand, and the wilderness on the other. I thought if I could get to the Amazon rainforest, it would help me understand Rio a little better..." Coley presents and attempts to unpack our preconceived notions of frontiers, by visiting distant, unknown, unfamiliar or even 'invisible' locations, testing the idea that there is always something more to learn through personal experience than can be seen on a map.
