Claudia Wieser’s 'But round my chair the children run, 2023', is part of 'La Cinquième Saison' (Engl.: The Fifth Season) by Paris+ par Art Basel, a group exhibition at Jardin des Tuileries produced in collaboration with the Musée du Louvre and curated by Annabelle Ténèze. Claudia Wieser’s practice often draws inspiration from architecture, history, and the sites of its presentation, exploring the intersection of art and design. This is no different with But round my chair the children run, 2023, a new piece specially created for the exhibition at Jardin des Tuileries, the former district of tile factories that occupied the area in the Middle Ages. The sculpture’s minimal and geometric form, yet imposing presence, coupled with its blank and partly polished materiality, presents an intriguing juxtaposition against the opulent backdrop of the garden and surrounding Palais.
