Art I like - Michel Francois

From the exhibition we stumbled upon at SMAK in Ghent in 2009, I've never forgotten these objects:
They were used, apparently, by Mexicans crossing the desert into the US - to disguise their footprints as cattle. 
Other objects in Michel Francois's huge show were similarly baffling - sometimes resonant, sometimes visually delightful, usually untitled. Here's a sampling of the many I photographed, in no particular order.

This one, too, sticks in my memory - as a subtle use of simple materials -
At the end of the afternoon, an installation of broken glass and the wintery blue twilight -
