  • Nathan Coley (born 1967) is a contemporary British installation artist, who was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2007.

    He makes installations based on architectural themes. One such is a scale model of the Manchester Marks and Spencer building which was damaged by an IRA bomb and subsequently demolished. His Show Home was originally installed in North Shields as part of Tyneside’s Art on the Riverside public art programme. “[1] He made work about the Pan Am Flight 103 blown up over Lockerbie. This included the recreation of a witness box used in the trial of Libyans charged with planting the bomb.[1] His Turner Prize nomination was for large cardboard sculptures of a synagogue, a mosque and a church, which he painted with stripes.[1]

    In 2006 Sanna’s work was spotted by the British group Keane which led to a remarkable collaboration on their second million selling album, Under the Iron Sea. Since this first commercial application, her talent has been in constant demand. She now divides her time between commissioned work and her ever-expanding range of self styled products
