Martin Wöhrl

Martin Wöhrl’s wide-ranging practice routinely incorporates reinterpreted motifs and strategies drawn from the history of art, architecture, and design and is characterized by an elliptical skirting of the borders between form and function. He uses found objects and scraps or materials sourced from budget DIY and hardware stores to craft minimalist sculpture that owes much of its identity to the original components. Strategies of juxtaposition and mimicry inject humor into his work, poking fun at cultural norms and traditional signifiers of value. Both master craftsman and utter hack, Wöhrl marries a strong aesthetic sensibility with a canny knowledge of his medium to toe the line between form and function.


Wöhrl’s works have been shown in galleries and institutions internationally including Museum Lothar Fischer, Germany, Neues Museum, Nuremburg, Museum für Konkrete Kunst, Ingolstadt, Germany, and Galerie Barbara Oberen, Bonn, Germany. His work has appeared in group exhibitions since 1998, including Stadtmuseum, Munich, Kallman Museum, Ismaning, Germany, Gagosian Gallery, Berlin, and Kunsthalle Mannheim, Mannhein, Germany. In 2011 Wöhrl received the Lothar Fischer Prize from the Lothar Fischer Museum in Oberpfalz, Germany.
