A Mexican art critic accidentally destroyed this 20k work (top) sparking a debate about what constitutes art

Some feather, a rock and ball
May not sound much like art at all
So at an art fair
The critic, Lésper
Caused the structure to have a big fall

          rest assured Mr. Charger, in my technology driven future this kind of nonsense (shady use of art as an asset and multipurpose cash machine) will be eliminated

          so I do hope you enjoy art for art’s sake

    “Avelina Lésper [the critic] said it was almost as if Gabriel Rico’s piece knew how much she disliked it”

    – well, fair play to her for taking ownership of it

    Some lines from The Hollow Men come to mind:
    Our dried voices, when
    We whisper together
    Are quiet and meaningless
    As wind in dry grass
    or rats’ feet over broken glass
    In our dry cellar

    Shape without form, shade without colour,
    Paralysed force, gesture without motion;”
