If you’re in the habit of taking risky selfies, you might want to reconsider that policy after watching this.
Excruciating footage of a woman doing just that at an exhibition – and then causing $200,000 of damage is circulating online.
It was captured at a pop-up exhibition space at LA’s 14th Factory, conceived by Hong Kong-based British artist Simon Birch, and shows the woman attempting to kneel in front of a plinth before sending it and many others toppling in a remarkable domino-style effect.
Gloria Yu, one of the artists featured in the exhibition told Hyperallergenic: “Three sculptures were permanently damaged and others to varying degrees.” She added that the approximate cause of the damage is $200,000.
No word on whether the gallery runs a “you break it you bought it” policy...
