About The Trilogy
To Hörl, the comparative political idea, which may be interpreted individually, represents an art which provokes discussion and doesn’t try to hide in the protected atmosphere of a museum. The sculptor designed his gnomes See Nothing,”, Hear Nothing,” Say Nothing” in the three different poses and respectively covering their eyes, ears, and mouth. At that time, the parade of 1,200 gnomes laid out in rows and columns created some hot debates. Ottmar Hörl exhibited his Bearers of Secrets Gnomes at the Art Fair Art Karlsruhe in 2006. He designed a good-looking gnome in three different poses “see nothing – hear nothing – say nothing” especially for the art fair.
