S-CHANF.- Von Bartha is presenting Berlin-based artist Claudia Wieser‘s first solo show at the gallery’s S-chanf space, 1 August - 12 September 2020. Taken from the first complete edition of Shakespeare's plays (1623), the exhibition title, Comedies, Histories and Tragedies, alludes to the stage-like setting of the exhibition, as well as evoking the full range of human experience. In light of current global events, Wieser invites self-reflection and a consideration of the comedies, tragedies and histories that humanity endures. For this exhibition, the artist combines a range of new works including pedestals, sculptures, wallpapers, and drawings.

Whilst Comedies, Histories and Tragedies centres in the cube-shaped main gallery space, as an introduction to the show a series of new drawings by Wieser are being exhibited around the exterior of the cube. Within the installed space, Wieser suggests the notion of a theatrical stage setting, consisting of a number of crafted elements. Wallpaper incorporating the artist’s own and found photographs covers three walls of the space. The resulting composition creates the sense of an optical illusion, opening up the space into three-dimensionality, as well as incorporating visual references to Classical antiquity, a recurring motif in the artist’s work. A group of wooden, gilted sculptures have been positioned throughout the exhibition. The abstract wooden figures each assume their own form, and therefore character, aiming to interact with the surrounding artworks and the viewer. Some figures stand on plinths positioned around the exhibition, which acts as a means for display as well as sculptures themselves. Three relief-like mirror works form part of the scenic space, and aim to make the viewer part of the scenery.

Known for her work based on the priciples of geometric abstraction, Wieser’s multimedia approach includes drawings, sculptures, wall installations and tapestries. Her practice explores the byways of art history and media, such as the transition of a utility object to a work of art; the border between art, architecture and design; and fields such as film and theatre.
