 For more than twenty years the human body and experience – physical, emotional as well as social – have played a central role in Margret Wibmer’s artistic practice. Using various media such as performance, video, photography, sculpture and textiles, she investigates the position of the human body in relation to the ever-changing digital environment and the meaning of the human body in the creation of knowledge. 

 

After spending a large part of the 1980ies in New York, a period that significantly formed her life and artistic practice, she moved to Amsterdam where she is based since. Her work is included in public and private collections in Europe, the US and Japan and has been performed and exhibited internationally among others at Palais de Tokyo, Paris / RMIT Design Hub, Melbourne / Oude Kerk, Amsterdam / Ishikawa Nishida Kitaro Museum of Philosophy, Japan / Mode Biennale Arnhem / Galerie Lumen Travo, Amsterdam / KAI 10 – Arthena Foundation, Düsseldorf / Centro per l’arte contemporanea Luigi Pecci, Prato / Fashion Moda Gallery, South Bronx.
