Willi Reiche has been artistically active since 1982; since 1998 he has devoted himself exclusively to kinetic art or the construction of art machines, which are characterised in particular by aesthetics and humour. Another important aspect for Reiche is sustainability; in the sense of upcycling, he uses discarded things and materials that are given a new appreciation when staged in an extraordinary way.

Viewers are inevitably drawn into the discovery of familiar objects in a completely new context.
Exhibitions in D, NL, GB and CH.
