Anselm Reyle

In the Sammlung Boros Bunker were several works by Anselm Reyle where he had taken an object and transformed simply by putting it in a gallery and repainting it, for example there were 3 bales of straw painted silver in the middle of a room.

This work below is called Heuwagen by Reyle done in 2003.  In the gallery it was dsiplayed in a darker room with relatively low lighting so the fluorescent yellow paint showed up strongly.  It reminded me of a brilliant work by Irish artist Dorothy Cross called Ghost Ship from 1999.
