Richard Serra, “One Ton Prop (House of Cards)” (1969) (from Arttattler.com)
In November 1971, Richard Serra’s “Sculpture No. 3” was installed at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. A sculpture formed from two 5-ton steel plates balanced against each other much like “One Ton Prop” above, the installation turned deadly when rigger Raymond Johnson was trapped underneath a plate that slipped its support and fell. Johnson was killed, and his wife filed a lawsuit against the artist, the museum, and the piece’s fabricators for wrongful death. The safety slots that would have held the steel plates in check were later discovered to have been shoddily built; in the end, it was the fabricators who were found negligent and the artist was exonerated.
