“The rabbit is a recurrent theme in Joseph Wagenbach’s oeuvre. From his notes in books and sketchbooks, we can draw the conclusion that it represented shyness, angst, stillness, as well as an unbroken will for survival, vigilance, lissomeness, and playfulness. Many of his sculptural works show chimeras of the female human body and the rabbit-body.” – Iris Häussler, Foundation Joseph Wagenbach.

Joseph Wagenbach was born 1929, in Winsen , a small town in Lower Saxonia, Germany. After WWII, he moved to Berlin, later to Paris. Immigration papers show his entry to Canada in 1962. Joseph settled in downtown Toronto, acquiring a house at 105 Robinson Street in 1967. Throughout his life, Joseph Wagenbach worked as a stock clerk, a truck-driver, a waiter, a janitor, and as a store clerk in a Salvation Army store. When suffering a stroke in June 2006, Wagenbach had been confined to a long-term care facility. However, in 2009 he disappeared traceless. Häussler then created the The Joseph Wagenbach Foundation to manage his artistic legacy.
