Sarah Pichlkostner

Sarah Pichlkostner (b. 1988, St. Johann im Pongau, Austria) creates sculptures and environments through which she investigates the representation of invisible processes: the transmission of energy, the passage of time, and our psychological responses to materials and things. Pichlkostner has been the subject of two solo exhibitions at Josh Lilley, in addition to Annet Gelink, Amsterdam; Galerie Hubert Winter, Vienna; De Ketelfactory, Schiedam; and a two-person exhibition with Donald Judd (curated by Rudi Fuchs) at the Arnulf Rainer Museum, Baden.

Sarah Pichlkostner lives and works in London.
