Claudia Comte

29 Apr 201629 May 2016

Claudia Comte is best known for her site-specific installations featuring wooden sculptural forms, set against graphic, abstract wall paintings or custom made plinth structures. Comte creates a unique system for each new body of work so that every piece relates to the particular space it is installed in.

Despite such regimented schemes, Comte’s pieces are imbued with a sense of playfulness, humor, and irreverence, puncturing the solemn atmosphere connected with minimalism. The well known work of the Swiss artist is featured here in the Chapel of St Agnes, a former Catholic Church constructed from 1964- 67 in the Brutalist style by architect Werner Düttmann, whose other notable buildings include the Academy of Art in Tiergarten.
