Nathan Coley (b.1967) is a British artist, based in Glasgow, who was shortlisted for the Turner Prize, 2007. Working across a wide range of media including illuminated text-based installation, sculpture, and video, Coley re-contextualizes ready-made cultural, political and religious symbols by re-placing them in different environments and locations. His strong interest in the idea of public space has led to world-wide public projects often exhibited outdoors or up on architecture.

Coley has had numerous international exhibitions including Tate Liverpool and the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art; Centro Cultural de Belem, Lisbon in 2001; and Westfalischer Kunstverein, Munster in 2000. His work was also included in Days Like These, a group exhibition at Tate Britain in 2003.

mezzaterra11 – flat gallery is a conceptual project space that opens up new interpretations on documentation images of contemporary artworks, by creating meta-linguistic translation as a white cube is compressed to be flat. International artists are invited to present their work with one image that is selected, adapted, and ultimately, printed for the space as a format of a solo show.
