A woman visiting an art gallery in Los Angeles recently embarrassed herself after she caused nearly $200k worth of damage after taking a selfie.
The incident involved a guest at the 14th Factory gallery in LA, which featured an exhibition by Hong Kong-based artist Simon Birch that included tons of man-made 3D art sculptures that took 20-30 man hours to create.
“A collaboration between Birch, Gabriel Chan, Jacob Blitzer, and Gloria Yu, the piece consists of a grid formed by pedestals that each carry a crown-like object. While some are made of wood, nylon, and scrap metal, others are crafted from precious metals such as gold, silver, and marble,” Hyperalleginic reported.
“Three sculptures were permanently damaged and others to varying degrees,” Yu said “The approximate cost of damage is $200,000.”
“Each sculpture that had fallen involves 20-30 hours of man labor – including the artist’s conception, 3D designers’ modeling, and metal welders and workers’ crafting and assembly. It would be pretty irrational for the artists behind these sculptures to intentionally inflict harm on their own work hoping to gain any benefit.”
In the video, the girl can be seen falling back into a display as she is taking a selfie, causing them all to tumble over like a set of dominoes.
You have to feel bad for the girl. Do you think she fell or did she accidentally lean on the display?
