    Three sick monkeys on the wall and each of them with a different ailment.

    The three monkeys of the sculpture group "A & E Monkey" have taken their places on a wall. By taking possession of the place as a matter of course, they appear disarming and playful. But the sculpture title chosen by the British artist Laura Ford opens up a deeper interpretation. "A & E" is the abbreviation for "Accident & Emergency Department". As patients in the accident and emergency room, which is used to provide medical care, the three animals present external injuries and pain. The first is wearing a plaster cast on his leg. His neighbor has drawn his legs to his body and presses a bandage on the inclined, apparently painful head. And the third monkey has its broken arm in a sling. Each one shows an individual sitting posture, which indicates serenity, relaxed waiting, but also tension, resignation and pain.
