Aah yes, the selfie – the best way to prove that you’ve been part of something great or in the case of the young woman in this video, an opportunity to destroy over $200,000 worth of art.
Here’s what the uploader of the video had to say:
Wait for it….. 0.11 is when the action happens. This took place at my mate Simon Birch’s art installation The 14th Factory in Los Angeles, when a lady tried to crouch down and pose in front of a pillar holding a sculpture to take a picture. She accidentally leant on it and the rest is history… $200,000 worth of art destroyed!
The room contains 60 crown-formed sculptures and is titled ‘Hypercaine’. The rest of The 14th Factory is one of its kind….. Go visit before it closes end of July (or before a few more pieces break).
Damn. I’m guessing that she’s going to need to take out a loan to cover all of that damage. Sometimes it’s best that you don’t ignore the signs and try snap pics of you next to pretty expensive pieces of art.
