Remember the kid who climbed on the Donald Judd sculpture at the Tate Modern? Well, her parents have taken to the London Evening Standard to set the record straight. They want the world to know that their daughter, Sissi Belle, was only on the sculpture for a matter of seconds and meant no harm — and that the nine-year-old is “anti-establishment” anyway.
I mean, let’s be honest here: who hasn’t fought the urge to climb all over a “jewel-colored” Judd? Anyway, this is apparently sort of a thing that the children do, this climbing statues business. Here are some of their conquests:
“There are some beautiful statues that they have climbed, the Henry Moore at Liverpool Street, ones along the South Bank where they are interactive and the Diana Memorial.”
