A written response to the exhibition, O Filo by Clarinda Tse can be found below. 

Fill O is the second part of an organisational exchange with P/////AKT, Amsterdam, with whom Sarah Pichlkostner realised the solo exhibition If the moon was a cookie in 2018. The first part of the exchange, I didn’t think it would turn out this way took place at P/////AKT from 13th November – 19th December 2021. The exchange was made possible with the support of the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts, Mondriaan Fund, Ammodo, and Creative Scotland. 

Sarah Pichlkostner (1988, 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. Or as she puts it: when material is brought to an object, i.e. is made into one, and the function of this object is continuously developing over time, then the object is ultimately reflecting us.

Pichlkostner currently lives and works in Fletching and is represented by Josh Lilley (London), Annet Gelink (Amsterdam) and Galerie Hubert Winter (Vienna). She studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and was a resident at de Ateliers in Amsterdam and ISCP in New York. Solo and groups exhibitions include, Galerie Huber Winter (2020), Josh Lilley Gallery (2021, 2019, 2017, 2015), Lustwarande (Tilburg, 2018), P/////AKT (Amsterdam, 2018), Annet Gelink Gallery (2018, 2015), Ketelfactory (Schiedam, 2017). Her work has been presented in one-artist booths at Artissima Fair in Turin and Vienna Contemporary fair (both 2017) and FIAC in Paris (2015).
