Ottmar Hörl: Sculpture "Dürer-Hare" (2012), silver-plated zinc version

Ottmar Hörl´s sculptural work is about the theme of normalization, of standardization of every-day objects. He makes however some shows of his "exhibitions", in an extremely humorous manner. His best-known action was dedicated to the artist Dürer and his world-famous Hare watercolors. At his "Large Piece of Hare" in 2003, not less than 7000 hares filled the central market in Nurnberg.

A result of his artistic actions, Hörl´s plastic multiples became sought-after collector items. We created now, as ars mundi exclusive edition, a serially numbered and signed special edition of 199 exemplars each, of heavy zinc alloy, optionally yellow (24-carat) or rosé gold-plated (1-carat) or fine silver-plated. Format: 6 x 11.5 x 15 cm (W/H/D). Weight ca. 1.9 kg. Dürer Hare Version: silver-plated zinc, 2012.

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.

Graphic or sculpture edition that was initiated by ars mundi and is available only at ars mundi or at distribution partner licensed by ars mundi.

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.

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.
