Sarah Pichlkostner (1988, Salzburg, Austria) lives and works in Vienna and London. In 2014 Pichlkostner has received the prestigious grant of De Ateliers in Amsterdam and in 2019 she will be a resident at ISCP New York, supported by Cultural Ministry of Austria. The long-term research by Sarah Pichlkostner is focused on the representation of time, space, self-optimization, productivity, self-reflection and empathy created by objects. Through a deep study of the behaviour of materials, that combines effortless contemporary methods with laborious and outmoded fabrication techniques, Pichlkostner reflects on the social behaviour of and towards objects. 


Solo and groups exhibitions include Galerie Huber Winter, Vienna (2020), Josh Lilley Gallery, London (2021, 2019, 2017, 2015), Annet Gelink Gallery, Amsterdam (2018 & 2015), Ketelfactory, Schiedam, (2017) and Academy of fine Arts, Vienna (2013). Her work has been presented in one-artist booth at Artissima Fair in Turin and Vienna Contemporary fair (both 2017) and FIAC in Paris (2015).
