Photo of Michael Landy's Break Down

Photo of Michael Landy's Break Down in London, UK

In 2001, artist Michael Landy took over an abandoned branch of C&A on Oxford Street and then destroyed everything he owned there. The installation was called Break Down. In this photo, you can see Michael Landy manning the conveyor belt of posessions which are fed into shredders. At the time I was there, a woman was arguing with him about his right to destroy a Damien Hirst artwork which he owned. The photo was taken using a film camera and the print was then scanned with a flatbed scanner.
