about Nicole Wermers

°1971, Emsdetten (DE) - lives and works in London (UK)

In her collages, photographs and sculptures, Nicole Wermers explores the modernist constructions which lie below our urban environment and contemporary consumer culture. Using materials that are directly associated with high modernism, her apparent functional sculptures resemble banal design, which generally characterizes public spaces. Wermers examines questions concerning the importance of the design of everyday objects: functionality and the serial productivity of these objects usually seem to disqualify it for fine art. By combining references to art history with modern surfaces and materials, she explores fine art aesthetics within the design of daily life, especially the way it has been appropriated by consumer culture.

Significant solo exhibitions include Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf; Aspen Art Museum, Colorado; Camden Arts Centre, London; and Secession, Vienna. Her work was also included in numerous group exhibitions in Tate Britain, London; Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt; Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zurich; and in the Hayward Gallery, London.

Wermers’ work can also be found in the permanent collections of, among others, Tate, London; Hamburger Kunsthalle, Hamburg; Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt; Karl-Ernst Osthaus Museum; Hagen; and in the DGZ Bank Collection, Düsseldorf. Nicole Wermers was also nominated for the 2015 Turner Prize.
