Cleaner Accidentally Destroys Thousands Of Pounds Worth Of Art

Recommended Posts

An Italian cleaner accidentally destroyed thousands of pounds’ worth of modern art when she threw part of an exhibition in the bin.

The installation at the Sala Murat gallery in Bari, southern Italy, featured works made out of newspaper, cardboard and even biscuit crumbs scattered across the floor.

The piece was meant to provoke art lovers to think about landscape and the environment.

But the work just provoked a zealous cleaner to pick it all up and hand it to rubbish collectors who then dumped it in landfill.

The art was worth an estimated 10,000 euros (£8,200) and the unnamed cleaner’s boss said his firm will stump up for the loss.

Lorenzo Roca, from cleaning firm Chiarissima, defended the cleaner and said she was ‘just doing her job’.

Security guards noticed a number of items were missing when the gallery opened on Wednesday morning.

:lol::lol::lol: Just goes to show that cleaners have a better appreciation of art than the likes of Kirsty Wark and Emily Maitlis on Newsnight.

And the other way round.

They should have marked the floor to say "art in here" so normal people wouldnt think somone emptied a bin and didnt clean it up

Emperor's new clothes, and all that...

Quote from Private Eye's Pseuds Corner:

Some responses to the new Martin Creed exhibition: 'What's the point of it?'

'On the screen, a woman enters a blank white space, crouches, defecates and promptly exits, leaving her stool on the white floor. Two further vignettes show people noisily vomiting, spattering the floor. These theatricalised purges are the most basic, abject and universal human and animal activities. They're neither beyond the pale nor outside the culture, but our reactions to them might depend on the culture we inhabit. They are also a rejoinder to accusations that Creed's work is shit, or that his paintings look like puke.'

'On the screen, a woman enters a blank white space, crouches, defecates and promptly exits, leaving her still on the white floor. Two further vignettes show people noisily vomiting, spattering the floor. These theatricalised purges are the most basic, abject and universal human and animal activities. They're neither beyond the pale nor outside the culture, but our reactions to them might depend on the culture we inhabit.
