Inkjets from the series ‘Journey to the Lower World’ relate to shamanic performances with the residents of a Liverpool tower block. ‘Sea Mammal’ images were developed during a residency at Berwick Gymnasium. “Coates’ work is embedded in a dialogue with ornithology, zoology, anthropology and philosophy – the studies of animal and human, but instead of rational or scientific analysis he explores his subject by doing and imitating, by immersing himself in other modes of being and literally inhabiting their skin”.
