We promise you, the Great Auks, that we will do everything in our power to honour your once thriving existence here. We promise to do all we can to protect your kin, the other auks, birds and animals that we share our territories with, to maintain the diversity of conditions necessary for their survival. We will use the lessons of your extinction to educate our young and to promote respect for other species. We will do everything in our power to prevent the future extinctions of others.

Workplace Gallery is pleased to present The Last of Its Kind a solo exhibition by Marcus Coates at our Mayfair Gallery. Central to the exhibition are two new films produced in association with the Museum of the Flat Earth on Fogo Island in Newfoundland, Canada. Both films act as cornerstones to a new body of work, brought together at the gallery for the first time, that explore our interconnection to other species, our impact upon their continued survival, and our relationship to our own extinction.
