Sculpture in the City is an annual sculpture park that uses the urban realm as a rotating gallery space. Claudia Wieser’s Generations (Part 2) is part of the 11th Edition, on display in the City of London’s financial district from 22 June 2022 until spring 2023.
Wieser’s site specific wallwork for The Leadenhall Building weaves various narratives—fictive, biographical, historical—into a backdrop that functions like a stage, encouraging the viewer to consider his or her place in time at the center of a great human drama that unfolds recurrently and relentlessly.
Situated in the City of London, whose history goes back to the Roman Empire, the arc is spanned from the ancient past to the present day.
Collaged together from her vast archive, the combination of textures, architecture elements, representatives of the past and the present, the layer of real people passing by automatically becomes part of the image cycle.
