Mike Nelson unveils 'The Asset Strippers' at Tate Britain

The Asset Strippers has been created for the annual Tate Britain Commission, which invites artists to create a new artwork in response to the grand space of the Duveen Galleries.

Mike Nelson, who has twice been nominated for the Turner Prize, has transformed the heart of Tate Britain into somewhere between a sculpture court and an asset strippers’ warehouse, carefully selecting objects from a past world, the post-war Britain that framed his childhood.

We spoke to Elsa Coustou, who curated the exhibition.
