Marc Quinn in Monaco

BBC adverts for the forthcoming Monaco Grand Prix reminded me that le Musée océanographique de Monaco is showing Marc Quinn "The Littoral Zone" until 15 October (CLICK). This is a retrospective of Britain's most innovative and talented sculptor, featuring 20 of his works. Above is his huge and impeccably balanced Planet (2008). I don't suppose this news will interest petrol heads visiting the Grand Prix. Unless it roars like a lion, stinks of fuel, flashes past in a blur of speed and occasionally crashes in flames, they're not fussed. One visit to Brands Hatch as a teenager was enough for me. I found it all rather boring.
