Mr Monkey in De Haan, 17th September

"They're very attractive with the sun going down behind them"

Mr Monkey looking at Le Vent souffle ou il veut Mr Monkey looking at The wind blows where it wants

On the beach at De Haan Mr Monkey found Le Vent souffle où il veut (The Wind blows where it will) by Daniel Buren. This was a collection of more colourfully striped windsocks than Mr Monkey could count, arranged in a diamond shape on the beach. After admiring them for a while, Mr Monkey realised that the windsocks were extended whether or not the wind was blowing and decided that there must have been some kind of framework inside them.

You can read about the artist at the Daniel Buren website.
