Claudia Wieser

b. 1973, Freilassing, Germany. Lives and works in Berlin, Germany

Claudia Wieser’s diverse practice spans a range of media, including drawing, sculpture, wall installations and ceramics, touching on fields including art, architecture, and design, as well as film and theatre. Her work is often based on the principles of geometric abstraction, and combines both art and craftsmanship, with objects such as painted ceramics and gilded wooden vases exploring the relationship between aesthetics and function, and the limits of shape, form and colour. Wieser is also interested in the development of art history and media: a utility object’s transition into a work of art, for example, or the white cube’s transformation into a stage. She apprenticed as a blacksmith, before studying Fine Art at the Akademie der Bildenden Künste Munich (from 1997 – 2004) under the direction of Axel Kasseböhmer and Markus Oehlen.
