Either people are on crack while visiting Doris’s crack at the Tate Modern in London or they are just downright stupid. How could 15 people hurt themselves in the first four weeks of the “Shibboleth” installation by Colombian artist Doris Salcedo?
I mentioned a story a couple of weeks ago where the first few idiots fell into the Tate Crack, but that figure has been rising each week.
Times Online has reported that the Tate Modern may have to implement options that could include “higher levels of control of entry, barrier or demarcation lines, Perspex bridging over certain sections or other physical interventions which may become required.”
The museum already has warning signs everywhere and leaflets about the work are handed out. So, unless you are blind, there is no excuse for falling into a crack that is clearly marked as a crack (unless you are trying to sue the museum!). I’m truly amazed at the stupidity of some people. Are these people just after attention or are they seriously this stupid all the time?!
Phew! That’s my rant for the week. I feel better now
