Margret Wibmer (born in Lienz, Austria) combines found objects, bodies, materials and spaces that are not obviously related to each other and constructs a “new world”. Her performances, photographic works and sculptures reference the diversity of cultural systems, opening up new geographical and transnational spaces, questioning Eurocentric systems of knowledge and representation.


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.
