Art on the beach :: Getij-dingen...

Getij-dingen 4

... or translated in English: "things in the tide". That's the name of an ongoing art exhibit on the beach between Koksijde and Nieuwpoort, Belgium. The name of the exhibit - Getij-dingen - has to be taken literally as artwork has been attached to 15 wooden beach poles and gets flooded as the water comes and goes with the tides. The pieces change over time, through the works of the see, the wind, the sand. Some get lost and replaced. An interesting concept, if you ask me.

Here's a selection of the ones we've seen on our walk. There are more and I definitely want to go back on our next visits...

For those of you interested in this exhibit, go check here for more information - unfortunately it's in Dutch only.
