Artist Assistant: Reko Rennie
In early 2017, I worked with Reko Rennie as an assistant on his monumental mural Visibile Invisible.
Reko was commissioned by Lyon Housemuseum through blackartprojects to create this 20 x 44 metre mural on the foundation concrete slab for their museum expansion. The work was sponsored by Dulux paints and used over 600 litres of paint to create Reko’s neon camouflage pattern. It took Reko, myself, and three other assistants five days in the summer sun to create the work that would be seen by the public only for one evening. After the launch night, it would be rendered invisible beneath a new building, save only for one small section under glass.
The photos here are my photos documenting the process, except the aerial photographs which are by John Gollings.
