Jeremy Deller - Ask the Animals, and They Will Teach You

Van Bunnenplein
8300 Knokke

About the artwork

For Beaufort 21, Deller has installed a giant chameleon attraction in Knokke-Heist. As both a sculpture and a children's slide, this work seeks to act as an alternative to traditional monuments, which are usually very serious, often refer to historical events and sometimes even emanate pure heroism. Instead, Deller pays tribute to one of the oldest creatures on earth, the chameleon, which he believes should be worshipped.
