ANSELM REYLE WAS AWARDED THE

ARKEN ART PRIZE 2012 


DONATED BY ANNIE & OTTO JOHS. DETLEFS' PHILANTROPIC FOUNDATION

 

At the award ceremony of the ARKEN Prize and Travle Grant 2012


An old wagon wheel hangs on the wall, illuminated by changing LED colours and arresting our attention. The wagon wheel is one of the German contemporary artist Anselm Reyle’s most iconic works. In it he combines abstract form, the found object and the nostalgic everyday kitsch we know from suburban house walls. 
 

Anselm Reyle has been awarded the ARKEN Art Prize 2012 of 100.000 DKR for elegantly and uncompromisingly creating works that both seduce and challenge our ideas of good art and good taste. He renews both figurative and abstract expression. He elevates otherwise elitist art out of its niche and makes it popular. Anselm Reyle’s works are among the most innovative and sophisticated on the international art scene today.

ARKEN has been enriched with nine works created by Reyle in a unique, generous donation from Annie & Otto Johs. Detlefs’ Foundations OJD. The works will remain on permanent display and offer an important perspective on the Danish and international art in ARKEN’s collection.
