Filling In Doris

Doris Salcedo - Shibboleth 2007Quote from ArtDaily: "An art installation, made by Colombian artist Doris Salcedo, is being filled in due to many injuries. This happens just six months after it was installed along the lenght of Turbine Hall at Tate Modern" (sic). Quote from BBC News on 8 October 2007: "The hole will be filled in next April" (title link). As it is now April, Doris's Crack is being filled in on schedule. Whoops! Another accident.

I always thought that the people that were injured by the crack deserved to be injured. If you're that stupid, you shouldnt be allowed to breed.

Absolutely. This is what happens when you replace natural selection with unnatural selection. The species starts falling down cracks.

Mind you, the Tate's calling the damned thing an "art installation" fooled some of the punters into thinking it was an illusion, not the real thing. Whoops! There goes another one!

It's about time Tate Modern was prosecuted under the Trades Description Act.
