Claudia Larcher’s artistic work deals with architecture. She is interested in places, that are connected to history, familiarity and memory, questioning the meaning of “home” and “identity”.
The last years she was working in the field of photocollage, (site-specific) video animation and mixed media installation. She is doing live visuals in performances and for live concerts. Claudia Larcher is co-curating the exhibitions of the artist collective PLINQUE since 2008.
