Margret Wibmer’s conceptual practice explores relations between bodies, objects and spaces. Using ambiguity and the principle of chance as a methodology to deconstruct internalized processes, norms and values deeply embedded within our societies, she creates transient ‘realities’ that explore new strategies for connecting us with the world.
Margret who works in various media such as photography, participatory performance art, sculpture and video, spent her early years in Eastern Tyrol, a remote area in the Austrian Alps. She studied at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and was based in New York throughout the 1980s before moving to Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Her works have been exhibited and performed at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, RMIT Design Hub Melbourne, Oude Kerk in Amsterdam, Nishida Kitaro Museum of Philosophy in Japan, Kunstpavillon Innsbruck, KAI 10 – Arthena Foundation in Düsseldorf, Lumen Travo Gallery, Bradwolff Projects, Movement Exposed Gallery Space and many other venues. Wibmer is adjunct lecturer at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA) in Singapore since 2021 and joined the US based Institute for Cultural Activism International as a performer and board member in 2022.
From 2012 till 2022 Margret Wibmer was an esteemed member of the DAI's Admissions Committee, acting as a career-advisor to our non-European passport holding students.
