When it comes to taking photos in an art gallery, caution is strongly advised. That’s what these two woman learned when visiting a gallery in Los Angeles and disaster struck!
“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,” writes the person who posted the video to YouTube. “She accidentally leant on it and the rest is history… $200,000 worth of art destroyed!”
Although the “selfie dominoes” is cringeworthy for any art gallery owner/artist to witness, the video has since gone viral and the artist’s friend couldn’t help but continue to be supportive of his friend’s efforts, writing, “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).”
