Journey to the Lower World by Alec Finlay, Marcus Coates

Cultural Writing. Poetry. Art. Photography. Film. Marcus Coates is setting off on a journey to the Lower World where he will perform a Siberian Yakut shamanic ritual for the residents of Sheil Park, Liverpool. This book tells the story. Edited by Alec Finlay as a "bookscape," JOURNEY features a DVD of Coates' performance, photographs by Nick David and writings by Mark Wallinger and JJ Charlesworth. About Coates' piece, Wallinger writes: "The work treads a fine line between pathos and bathos. It is touching because it has enacted the fears and vulnerability of audience, which are real enough if ultimately unknowable, and finds its own strange way to an image of hope for them to take away."
