The Evening Standard reports that a party in Kenny Schacter’s gallery thrown by his teenage sons got out of hand:
Mr Schachter, Adrian, 15, and Kai, 14, could only look on in horror as the glass box containing two bronze figures smashed as a girl danced into it.
Today the apologetic gallery owner said he would “do whatever it takes” to make good the damage to the piece entitled How I Wish I Slept.
Tracey Emin told the Standard from Miami: “Accidents happen. It was only the plinth that broke and the work is insured so I’m fine about it. It’s not like my tent which was burnt to the ground along with other priceless other works of art which was something to get upset about.”
