Description A Place Beyond Belief

For 'A Place Beyond Belief', Nathan Coley uses a quote from a radio interview on the ten-year commemoration of 9/11. A woman expresses her insights into how New York might overcome the events in becoming ‘a place beyond belief’. Coley says: ‘Rather than a political broadcast, 'A Place Beyond Belief' stresses the importance of faith, not in a strictly defined moral or religious cadre, but more generally, a faith in humanity in all its individual and collective guises.’
