Marcus Coates

Dawn Chorus

14 February 2007 - 18 March 2007

Marcus Coates is a British artist who has exhibited internationally. His work crosses the boundaries between live performance and film making. Coates often documents his dark and humorous attempts to connect with the animal world.

Dawn Chorus is the latest in a series of films by Coates in which the human voice accurately mimics birdsong. In this multi-screen video installation 19 singers reproduce a recording of a group of wild British birds singing at dawn.  Dawn Chorus explores the relationship between birdsong and its parallels with human culture and behaviour.

Additional Information

Dawn Chorus is commissioned by Picture This for BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, supported by the Wellcome Trust
