About Ottmar Hörl – Gnome – Green Sponti Key Ring (1994/2006)
This colorful and amusing Green Sponti Key Ring (1994/2006) features one of the iconic middle finger gnomes first displayed by the conceptual contemporary German artist Ottmar Hörl in his sculptural project “Rolling Change” at Seligenstadt in 1994. During the sculptural project “Rolling Change”, Hörl displayed 1000 blue gnomes distributed across the city. Although the work was initially intended to be a public work, the artist intentionally allowed viewers in the city to take the amusing gnomes to their homes, thus blurring the lines between public and private works of art. Hörl’s “Rolling Change” sculptural project was reissued in 2006 at the Kunst Rai at the Maisenbacher Art Gallery Trier in Berlin. More details on Ottmar Hörl’s Green Sponti Key Ring:
