Claudia Comte (b. 1983, Switzerland) is best known for her site-specific installations, featuring wooden sculptural forms set against graphic, abstract wall paintings. She creates a unique, rule-based measurement system for each new body of work so that every piece relates to a particular scale. For her first retrospective survey exhibition "10 Rooms, 40 Walls, 1059 m2" at the Kunstmuseum Luzern, this principle has become the agenda: the artist has used 10 rooms, created 40 wall paintings, and filled 1,059 square meters of space by combining the painted museum walls with new series of paintings and sculptures. Despite such regimented structures, Comte’s pieces are imbued with a sense of playfulness, humor, and irreverence, puncturing the seriousness connected with minimalism.
