Marcus Coates: Nature Calendar, Les Extatiques, Paris

22 June - 2 October 2022

Marcus Coates' Nature Calendar compiles, thanks to the collaboration of researchers, amateur naturalists and citizen projects, the biodiversity news that occurs in Paris and its surroundings. The statements are projected on advertising boards as real information in real time at sites across La Défense, La Seine Musicale and Courbevoie.


"Les chauves-souris sont en pleine activité, chacune attrapant des centaines d’insectes la nuit"

(Bats are fully active, each catching hundreds of insects at night)


"Le coucou cesse progressivement de chanter son propre nom"

(The cuckoo gradually stops calling its own name)


Organised by Paris La Défense and the Department of Hauts-de-Seine, Les Extatiques returns for a fifth edition with the theme of 'the living'.
