For her first solo museum exhibition in North America, Berlin-based artist Claudia Wieser (b. 1973, Freilassing, Germany) will present a site-specific installation of glazed ceramic tiles and prismatic mirrored facets against a background of geometrically-patterned wallpaper. In addition to the tile and mirror wall relief, Wieser will show a new series of colorful line drawings that play on the installation's optical and spatial illusions and serve to foreground her distinctive approach to abstraction. Together, the works mark the experiential and the intangible through precise geometries imbued with layers of spiritual, psychic, and phenomenal meaning that lead the viewer into contemplative spaces where the primacy of mark-making and viewing become fused.
Curated by Joanna Kleinberg, Assistant Curator.
