Artwork for facades and visuals from Claudia Caviezel for the first world exhibition in Central Asia in Astana, capital of Kazakhstan in collaboration with Atelier Oï 

For the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs FDFA CH


Welcome to the Swiss Pavilion! Step inside and discover an interactive and poetic ecosystem in the midst of the modern and dynamic Astana exhibition. Focused on energy efficiency and sustainability and the management of natural resources, the Pavilion is centered on renewable energy sources. It also shows off the beauty of the Swiss Alps and promotes Switzerland as fertile ground for scientific research and innovation.

IFDM –Agatha Kari: “Future Energy is the theme of Expo 2017 in Astana, from 10 June to 10 September. The Swiss Pavilion under the slogan Flower Power symbolizes the power of nature and its potential in the form of renewable energies.

The white landscape transforms into a magical garden with trees that dance in cycles and blooming flowers. Everything is colorful and dynamic in order to convey energy to the visitor through a real sensory explosion.
In collaboration with Claudia Caviezel and Expomobilia, Atelier Oi has designed a lyrical and poetical pavilion with stylized little white houses of various dimensions, rotating trees and colorful projections on the floor.”

Chamber Gallery New York, US

Room With Its Own Rules: Collection #3

“Room With Its Own Rules” is an example of what is clearly not yet happening. It presents a parallel, post-patriarchal reality in which an all-female show is a normal phenomenon, rather than a specially planned “affirmative action.” – Matylda Krzykowski

Accra / 2017

For this work I was inspired by a text I read about a person living in Accra, the capitol of Ghana - the former British colony now independent > the classic „European“/English wallpaper fades out in tropical colors and fauna, …one side has the clash of different traditions - but also nature, that takes back civilized property so fast - that gives hope and feels good…

It is printed on a light fabric in bright colors - hung over a simple metal bar - not fixed, it moves in the wind.

Damn Magazine online: "The final show of Collection #3 is an all-female show, with work by Ana Kraš, Ania Jaworska, Åsa Jungnelius, Buro Belén, Claudia Caviezel, Gun Gordillo, Hilda Hellström, Johanna Grawunder, Katie Stout, Kiki van Eijk, Lindsey Adelman, Liz Collins, Marlène Huissoud, Mimi Jung, Mira Nakashima, Pieke Bergmans, Sabine Marcelis, Sarah Zapata, Sigrid von Lintig, Studio Berg, and Zohra Opoku. The title of the show, Room with Its Own Rules, ties together the many studio visits and conversations conducted, encouraging a range of strong women define their own principles for life and work. The selection of objects produced for Show IV is a combination of work by female designers, artists and architects who relate to ideas around living spaces and desired objects. Many of the works on view center around colliding ideas of functional object and sculpture.

Chamber gallery is a 21st century cabinet of curiosities for one-of-a-kind, rare and limited edition objects of design and art. Founded in 2014 in New York City, the gallery aims to be a reliquary for unusual objects, as well as a platform for design experimentation. As a central part of its program, an artist or designer is chosen to curate an entire collection, bringing their unique viewpoint to Chamber through specially commissioned works and rare and vintage items."

Claudia Caviezel Textildesign Photography wallpaper exhibition museum bellerive zürich marroc

Maroc Couleurs Désert, Museum Bellerive Zürich  //2.9.2016 - 29.1.2017

Out of materials that have served their purpose they create a new kind of applied art: in the Moroccan Sahara the women of a Berber tribe use wool from old pullovers to weave carpets, blankets and cushions of high design quality. Since the 1980s these talented weavers have opened up a unique world of forms and colours by creatively examining traditional handcraft and employing a highly individual style.

I presented 4 photographies - which I took my inspiration from the atmosphere of the Ethnographic Museum in Chefchaouen, which deals with the cultural heritage of northern Morocco. The portraits of woman in traditional costumes from the region inspired my to rework them with my own camera. I captured the reflection of fluorescent lights, which give this tradition a futuristic note, almost like lightsabers. Printed on fabric and with bright dots of colour, the pictures now excude a Western aesthetics.

Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery  (www.operacity.jp) 2015 January 17th ~ March 29th
Shizuoka Prefectural Museum of Art / 2015 July 11th  ~ August 23th
Sapporo Art Museum / 2015 September 8th ~ November 8th 

Throughout the year 2014, Japan and Switzerland will celebrate the 150th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations. In the wake of the first treaty of Amity and Commerce signed in 1864, the countries have built a long and lasting friendship. Among the several exhibitions and events that will commemorate this anniversary in both countries, the present exhibition will offer an emphasis on “150 years of Swiss Design - Craftsmanship and functional beauty”.

I created a picture printed on textile cloth. Playing with the idea of „classicism landscape" wallcovering , combining  japanese and swiss sceneries, as well as Fauna and Flora and mixing it up with a touch of Painting and High Tech here and there.

In a former industrial site in Shanghai the Westbund Art & Design Fair
took place from September 25 to 29, 2014.
I was invited to present my textile art wall „Naturaleza“ together with a selection from the swiss design prize Langenthal and at the design forum I had a speech about textile design in different collaborations.


 on smartshanghai.com:
"The venue alone makes this show worthy of a visit. Just like the Yuz Museum next door, it’s a renovated hangar at the old Longhua Airport. Unlike its highly polished neighbor, however, this space is refreshingly rougher around the edges, retaining fascinating traces of its former function. It's an ideal venue for showing contemporary art: with high ceilings and big spaces."

...."Schon eher aus der Reihe zu tanzen scheint Claudia Caviezel: Als Designerin beim renommierten St. Galler Textilhersteller Jakob Schlaepfer hat sie Flower-Power mit barocker Überschwänglichkeit kombiniert und Stoffe entworfen, welche die Modewelt elektrisierten. Jedenfalls gehören Labels wie Akris, Vivienne Westwood und Louis Vuitton zu ihren Kunden."....
