Claudia Wieser: Poems of the Right Angle was published on the occasion of her solo exhibition at the The Drawing Center in New York in 2010. This publication documents Wieser's exhibition, a site-specific installation of glazed ceramic tiles and prismatic mirrored facets against a background of geometrically-patterned wallpaper.

In addition, the publication includes 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. Phenomenal meaning may lead the viewer into contemplative spaces where the primacy of mark-making and viewing becomes fused.

This publication features over 20 color plates and an essay by exhibition curator Joanna Kleinberg.

Claudia Wieser

Claudia Wieser (b. 1973 in Freilassing) is known for her Modernist-inspired geometric constructions that reference Bauhaus architecture and design, spirituality, alchemy, and furniture design, with a nod to 20th century abstraction and expressionism. Trained as a blacksmith, her work is rooted in craft and functionality. Wieser always relies on her environment, takes into consideration site specificity and conceives her work with the public in mind, to provide an opportunity for escape, respite, and connection as we re-emerge into our shared world. The artist lives and works in Berlin.
