In October I went to Paris for eight days, followed by two weeks in Portugal. While I was in Paris, there was an art fair on called Fiac! Outside the Louvre and in the Tuileries Gardens were a number of installations. The first image is of a giant blow up airplane which is in the process of being deflated. The next image is a sculpture by the artist Mark Dion, called ' The Tuileries Conservatory for Confectionery Curiosities'.
