Woman's Selfie Attempt Destroys $200000 Art Installation Near LA Chinatown

A different woman takes a selfie with artist Ai Weiwei

A patron of the 14th Factory art gallery in Los Angeles, Calif., damaged $200,000 worth of art while attempting to take a selfie several weeks ago.

The woman was crouching in front of a row of sculptures placed on pedestals to take a selfie, when she lost her balance and knocked over the pedestal behind her.

The Hypercaine exhibit is one of 14 rooms of the show that was six-years in the making and was originally planned to take place in Hong Kong, before moving to LA.

A woman posing for a selfie with Simon Birch's $200,000 exhibition in the background slipped at the worst moment, knocking an entire row of works over.

The woman appears to lean against one of the structures, sending it toppling into others in a domino effect until they all fall down.

The 14th Factory is a non-profit temporary art project located in Los Angeles, California and is scheduled to close at the end of July.

The CCTV footage from the 14th Factory was shared online by a YouTuber who claimed to be a friend of the British-born artist.

Titled "Hpercaine", the exhibit consists of various crowns built using different mediums, from marble to gold, wood, nylon or even dried herbs and flowers.

The general public destroying art by mistake is nothing new though.

It was said that Birch's project took him nearly six years to finish and was supposed to be held in Hong Kong before he settled in an empty warehouse downtown in Los Angeles.
