Lives and works in Vienna


Claudia Larcher is a visual artist with a focus in video animation, collage and installation.

She studied “Plastic and Multimedia” at the University of Applied Arts in the masterclass of Prof. Erwin Wurm and “Media Art” in the masterclass of Prof. Bernhard Leitner.

She attended various cross-media workshops for example at “Tanzquartier Wien”, at “Tokyo Wonder Site Japan” and the “Tanz Medien Akademie” in Weimar. Since 2005 she has participated in various group exhibitions and festivals in Austria and abroad and presented her work in solo and group exhibitions: e.g. steirischer Herbst in Graz, Tokyo Wonder Site Japan, Slought Foundation Philadelphia, Weimar Art Festival, Centre Pompidou Paris, Museum of Contemporary Art, Roskilde and the Viennale.

Claudia Larcher's artistic interests are places connected to history, familiarity and memory, questioning the meaning of "home" and "identity". The rooms stand therefore both for topographical realities and imagined memories. This results in (site-specific) video animations, photo-montages, collages and objects. She also experiments with visuals for performances and concerts.
