Like You Do was completed during lock-down in 2021. It is intended to be a nice place to spend some time.

Between the peaks and valleys of daily life is the journey, the happening. There is rhythm in the drift. All of it is valuable, some of it is beautiful, none of it is wasted time.

It’s a new kind of self-portrait. Usually artists paint themselves, but I have let all the people that know me, draw and paint my face. I’m not only as I see me, but also like my environment views me. Therefore I am everyone in these pictures and the sum of it all shall be me.
It’s also interesting to see the differences regarding the same object (me), as every person has its own style even if they are not aware of it.
This will be an ongoing project, as I’m always meeting new people. So I will release annually an updated version.

“What would happen if at some point, natural and human-made sounds became indistinguishable from one another? Today, birds imitate telephones and people put little chirping boxes in their homes. Katharina Pichler soberly compiles such observations while nature and civilization come together audio-visually to ultimately merge in a portentous alliance.” (Diagonale Festival of Austrian Film 2022, catalog text, cw)

When I sleep im not longer conscious about myself, I become in any animal, in any plant, in any image. I speak in foreign languages that I don’t even know. And the only reason I woke up was to tell you about my dreams and what happened to me lately

Like a caged moth –
I move from light spot to light spot
from room to room.
to let the sun in – just a little
8:12 am
I stopped listening to the news everyday”

What use have the mechanisms of meritocracy in times of rapid change? What relevance has the constant look on the clock and how does it effect our psyche in times of a global pandemic? Where is the feeling of constantly having to be productive coming from? This work visualizes questions related to the passing of time and the pressure of performance – in a time that is so different than ever before.

Radar Vienna ANGEWANDTE ANIMATION Competition

PIANO DECONSTRUCTED is a video by Media Artist and Filmmaker Clara Jacquemard and Noise Artist Johanna Schlömicher. In front and behind the camera Johanna Schlömicher acts with a piano. Proof of a long lasting relationship, the instrument was declared un-tunable.
Memories are being processed, grief is a challenging process. Expectations and desires one has for themselves are being projected upon and the piano can become a snarling monster. Despite of impressions of unvoluntary adaption, the bare instrument opens up new space. The camera between documentary and performance, new variations are being explored.
