Flying Herings

For KunstKijk Goeree Overflakkee in the Netherlands I made a wind installation. An experiment that worked out well. Tent pegs on strings, quietly at first, swinging far out later on. Some of the tent pegs group together. The pegs that keep apart have the most freedom to fly.

In Dutch, tent peg is ‘haring’ which is also the Dutch word for ‘the fish ‘hering’. ‘Vliegende haringen’ could mean flying herings, or flying tent pegs.
