"A story overheard in a bar about a 17th-century French king can be as useful a start to making art as any. But I am less interested in the start. It’s what can be made new that counts" (Nathan Coley, interview with Charlotte Day, 2010).
In well-known works such as 'There Will be No Miracles Here' (2006), 'The Lamp of Sacrifice' (2004) and 'Fourteen Churches of Munster' (2000), Glasgow-based Nathan Coley explores the relationships between belief, rationality, and power, often in relation to architectural form and the construction of public space. In this talk Coley will speak about his artistic practice, and a number of recent major projects. His recent exhibitions include 'Knowledge, Kindliness and Courage,' CAG, Vancouver; 'A Place Beyond Belief' at Haunch of Venison, London; 'Ballast' at Scheepvaartmuseum, Amsterdam, Netherlands; 'Appearances' at ACCA, Melbourne, amongst many others. Coley was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2007, and his work is represented in many international public and private collections, including the National Galleries of Scotland, and Jupiter Artland, Edinburgh.
