Katharina Lackner’s work is focused on shifts and changes in perception. Her ideas are realised in video projects, installations and temporary performative interventions. A recurring theme is the exploration of movement in space with reference to herself.

She frequently appears in these works as a protean figure, reminiscent at times of fairy tales, and allows us to visually share her existentially simple bodily experiences. She uses her own body as a platform from which to explore limits and to bring about radical rearrangements. In this, she combines real with made up or manipulated material using simple – digital or analogue – means. Adventure, heroism and longing are key themes in her new video installation for TRIENNALE LINZ . The superimposition of video and drawing results in a mixture of clichéd pictures featuring the motifs of longing and travelling. This crossfading results in pictures appearing within pictures: details in the drawings are zoomed in on as if they were seen through a telescope. Projections produce aliases and cause lines to disappear. It is an attempt to use reduction and abstraction to collapse the many lines of great themes into one – the horizon – which everything seems to gravitate towards. It is the horizon that mirrors the most diverse elements of cartography. A new map emerges, showing how mountains morph into clouds, clouds into waves, islands into stars and how these again dissolve in a system of coordinates. Boundaries are put to the test, shifted – and then disappear altogether in a welter of lines.»
