Moment when woman topples over artwork caught on tape

This is the excruciating moment a woman is alleged to have destroyed as much as RM859K worth of art in a Los Angeles gallery.

The real-time CCTV from art gallery showing the destruction will set the teeth of artists across the world on edge - but obviously it had the internet roaring with laughter.

It happened at the 14th Factory in Los Angeles.

The woman, who has not been identified, quickly gets up and starts rearranging the pedestals.

The exhibit in question is named Hypercaine and was created by Birch and fellow artists Gabriel Chan, Jacob Blitzer and Gloria Yu.

The military crackdown killed hundreds, possibly thousands, of people and heralded a more repressive era. One of the most important critic of China's Communist Party has died after years of imprisonment.

As Hyperallergic points out, the Los Angeles Times ran a preview of the show back in May that was headlined "Oh, the selfies you'll make at LA's 14th Factory, where the art is so social".

The incident occurred more than a week ago but the video was shared on Thursday by someone who claimed to know Birch personally. A lot of people have died while taking selfies on a high rooftop or on a railway track.

In footage posted online on Thursday (July 13), a woman can be seen squatting down to take a selfie in front of one of the pedestals, when she loses her balance and knocks into the corner pedestal tipping it over.

A recent study said that more than 120 people across the world have lost their lives while taking selfies at exotic or unsafe locations between March 2014 and September 2016, Forbes reported.

Three of the artworks were "permanently damaged" in the accident, the spokesperson said, and other were damaged "to varying degrees".
