Claudia Chaseling (b. Munich, 1973; lives and works in Berlin) rose to international renown with outsize Spatial Paintings, abstract murals that project from the wall. The edition consists of small-format overpainted photographs that denounce environmental crimes all over the world. time closes and opens eyes, for instance, refers to the planned construction of a hydropower plant at Lukovo Pole, Macedonia, that would have ravaged the entire region’s ecosystem. Lordy Lord, meanwhile, is about illegal logging in the forest of the Chuka in Kenya that led to the indigenous people’s displacement. illusion underneath the sun addresses the appropriation of land for ostensibly eco-friendly purposes—in this instance, the construction of the world’s largest solar power station in Ouarzazate, Morocco—and policies of losing visualizes the drying-up of the Aral Sea in Uzbekistan and Kazakhstan, whose tributaries are diverted for irrigation of the surrounding cotton plantations. Chaseling’s paintings are an intuitive response to and tentative exploration of these disturbing developments.
