coats in space

The installation “Infrastructure” from artist Nicole Wermers hits a proud 690 entries on Instagram and despite her nomination she did not win the Turner Prize 2015. In this work, cantilever chairs have been placed in a spacious room with a concrete floor, vintage fur coats are thrown across the backs of the chairs. Is the wearer marking their territory? What chances does one have to claim room for themselves in public spaces? This video from TateShots is an opportunity to gain more insight into Wermers’ artistic creations.
