Born Epsom, 1978, lives and works in London.

Mike Cooter studied Fine Art at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, University of Oxford, from 1997 – 2000. He received an MA (Sculpture) from the Royal College of Art, London, in 2003.

Mike Cooter’s practice is typified by a combination of meticulous archival research and formal reflexivity. Concerned with the narrative agency of objects, his work seeks to investigate how narrative use effects the understanding of matter and vice-versa.
