In his sculptures, installations and objects, Martin Gostner is critically engaged with history and memory. This is partly achieved through an ironic dissociation of familiar materials, like soft cotton wool, that reveals the historically imprecise subjectivity of so-called official history. Gostner's poetic works involving language are included as well.

The multifarious oeuvre of Austrian-born artist Martin Gostner is not restricted to the cotton wool works for which he has become known. Concerned with the topic of remembrance, from personal to official histories, in all of their imprecision and pliability, Gostner has created complex installations that hint at enlightenment, the lack thereof, and the figure of the modern artist.
