210 Small and Medium Pieces Occasionally Taking Shape (2002)
A horse skeleton is suspended inside the stable. The bones are gilded and move gently in the breeze. The gold, a reference to the economic potential of the race horses and the betting industry, changes the perception of the skeleton dramatically. The aura of death seems absent and through the calm but distinct movements of the bones this dead horse takes on a new life.

Shadow Renderings of Random Imaginations of Horses in Contemporary Kitsch (2002)
This very dark stable shows a very low-tech projection of horse imagery.
These images are all based on human memory and imagination. They are black and white reductions of amateur photographs of small horse sculptures as found on the Internet. While totally artificial, they reflect our human imagination what a happy horse would be just as much as they remind us that the horses which live in these stables must have dreams and desires which go beyond their sometimes grim duty of being a ban-ba horse, which means they have to drag a one-ton concrete slab over two humps in front of a human audience.

Horse Sculptures Made in China, India, Thailand and of Unknown Origin (2002)
A selection of small horse sculptures is now inhabiting the stable.

As an innovator of media art, Gunther visualizes phenomena beyond borders and presents them to his audience. Many of his artworks are completed within the audience experience. They sometimes become presentations of problems or completely unexpected proposals. Gunther is an active journalist but chooses "art" as a way of expression to be free of any restrictions. His recent interest has been in "diplomacy."

"N, Oishi, Okawari! (Mmmm, good, may I have more?") After drinking complimentary milk at the arrival gate at Obihiro Airport, Ingo Gunther said so in Japanese. It was a sign of good luck.
On the way to the city, we saw "Glucks-Konigreich," which is a reproduction of a castle from Medieval Germany. He said, "the original is in my home town!" This was a strange deja vu for Gunther, who left his hometown earlier in his life and has traveled around the world since he was a student. He said that he drove by the original castle just a year before.
After entering the racetrack, which would be used as an exhibition site, he suddenly became serious, looking intensely at the site. His digital video camera became a part of his brain and focused on the possible site for his project. Gunther rapidly asked to-the-point questions and gave us ideas.
At dinner, he finished up six raw oysters and crabs and was totally satisfied with the food and nature of Obihiro. Gunther left saying "see you in November!" after charming everyone with his charismatic and fun personality.
