"The sculpture reemrenreh is one of two parts of a joint work by the sculptor Bogomir Ecker and the composer Bülent Kullukcu, which was created for the major exhibition EMSCHERKUNST.2010.
Ecker's sculpture will remain installed in Herne beyond the three-month duration of the exhibition. Reemrenreh (hardly any singing) consists of three parts: a street lamp and two tower-like sculptures. The 16 meter high street lamp illuminates the other two parts of the sculpture at night and is naturally placed in the middle of the water - in the Herner Meer. The resulting enraptured, surreal effect is underlined by the fact that the oversized lantern does not serve as a yardstick, cannot help to clarify the proportions. The largest, yellow part of the ensemble easily towers above it by seven meters; the third, smallest part looks tiny at just under eight meters. The two "towers" next to the lantern are reminiscent of building blocks

It is worth taking a short photo stop here to marvel at the "Käsestange", actually "Reemrenreh" by the Düsseldorf artist B. Ecker on the opposite side of the canal. It belongs to the Emscherkunst. In general, the section on the canal dike is very impressive in itself, as it is several meters high here. On the right the canal and on the left it goes really deep down.
