Dreamspace Nightmare

Maurice Agis inside DreamspaceDo you remember that inflatable art installation Dreamspace which rose into the air, driven by a freak gust of wind, and killed two people and injured 13 others, in July 2006? If not, CLICK. Today, at Charing Cross police station in London, artist Maurice Agis was charged with "gross negligence manslaughter". He has also been charged under health and safety laws, as have Chester-le-Street District Council, its director of development services Tony Galloway and promotions company Brouhaha International Ltd. They are all due to appear before Peterlee Magistrates' Court on 26 February. It makes you wonder how Tate Modern can get away with Doris's Crack (CLICK). No deaths yet, I suppose.
