Nicky Coutts
Resident: 2008 - 2009
12 months
Nicky is interested in how we see the natural environment, in how natural it really is, in the baggage we bring with us when we approach the landscape and in how we might speak of it.

Her work usually involves participation from groups and individuals who invest in place or share a specialism key to a particular environment.
In the recent project My Previous Life as an Ape, (2015) involving animal movement specialists from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, human attempts to become animal are recorded and re-assembled in film, photographs and drawings.

Nicky is based in London where she teaches at the Royal College of Art.
