On the 200th birthday of Richard Wagner 500 Wagner figures were presented at the festival in the Festival Park and at the heart of Bayreuth from July 23 to August 28, 2013. Either concentrated in one area, or spread among public places, my installations become visual and tangible obstacles. They should trigger a thought, a moment of pause. Thus, they are intended to provoke the social communication." (Ottmar Horl)

Der Künstler Ottmar Hörl Ottmar Horl (born 1950), President of the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg, is one of the most important contemporary German artists. His sculptural work touch upon the topic of standardization, the same design of numerous objects, surrounding us in everyday life. But he does it in a very humorous way, and his "Exhibitions" turn to real shows. When he drags a huge swarm of owls to Athens, puts hundreds of bears near the Brandenburg Gate, or shows 1000 meerkats at the “company trip”. All that is made of bright plastic. "Whether they are concentrated on a square or distributed in the urban space my installations turn to visual obstacles. Their aim is to provoke to think, to take a pause." His most famous performance was dedicated to the artist Durer and his famous watercolor “Hare”. The "Great Piece of Hare" by Horl, completed in 2003, included no less than 7000 rabbits, exhibited in the main market at Nuremberg.

Designation for an art object (sculpture, installation), which is produced according to the will of the artist in multiple copies in a limited and numbered edition.

Artist's multiple contributed to "democratization" of art as the work was made available and affordable for a wider audience.

A plastic work of sculptural art made of wood, stone, ivory, bronze or other metals.

While sculptures from wood, ivory or stone are made directly from the block of material, for bronze casting a working model is prepared at first. Usually it is made of clay or other easily shaped materials.

The prime time of sculpture after the Roman antiquity was the Renaissance. Impressionism gave a new impulse to the sculptural arts. Also the contemporary artists, such as Jorg Immendorf, Andora, and Markus Lupertz enriched the sculpture with outstanding works.
