Today’s pic shows a work by NICOLE WERMERS that is currently on view in her solo exhibition Grundstück.

Entitled Mood Boards (2016-2017) the work consists of a series of wall-hung baby-changing stations filled with different types of terrazzo.

Terrazzo is an affordable imitation of marble which was developed in Venice over 500 years ago. Just like the foldable baby stations, this type of flooring is often used in public buildings or apartment buildings among others. The combination of those both materials which are reminiscent of middle-class banality, seems to serve as a viscera in moving through questions of class, culture, and gender.

Grundstück by NICOLE WERMERS is on view at Jessica Silverman Gallery in San Francisco until February 18, 2017.
