Squared photos - Ottmar Hörl goes Instagram
Ottmar Hörl's installations function as incentives, they stimulate debates, and they're gone shortly after. This is part of Hörl's concept as an artist. For all those who have missed these temporary art events, they will continue to have their effect as photo documentations on Instagram.

running until 16. September 2016: exhibition "Querbeet durchs Grün" [Across the Greenery], Galerie Abtart in Stuttgart
Right in time for the summer, ABTART gallery offers playful reflections upon different approaches to, and associations evoked by, the colour green. The wide choice of art works featured in this group exhibition ranges from landscapes and nature pieces, through floral and abstract positions, to associative and conceptual takes on the subject.




27 to 30 October 2016: Kunst Zürich featuring monochrome exhibition
At the end of October, the Obrist gallery from Essen will be showing Ottmar Hörl's "Broom Pieces" at the Kunst Zürich art fair. These pieces are about a further development of monochrome painting in that a single colour extends into the third dimension.

Running until 23 October: Say it with flowers!, Schloss Moyland
Museum Schloss Moyland is staging a flower show of a very special nature. An exhibition showcasing works by artists from Germany and abroad looks into the way flowers have been presented, and dealt with, in art since 1960. Ottmar Hörl, for instance, has set up an installation with roses welcoming visitors in the Kutschenrondell roundabout at the castle's entrance.
