Couple Breaks Museum Art, Leaves Scene 台南親子沙坑小木偶斷手 園方緊急封鎖

The arm of a wooden puppet at the sandpit of Tainan Shan-shang Garden and Old Waterworks Museum was found broken. Security camera footage showed that to take better pictures, a visitor climbed on top of it, and then the puppet's arm broke. The museum called on that visitor to come out and arrange for repairs.


The surveillance camera footage shows a couple at Tainan Shan-shang Garden and Old Waterworks Museum's sandpit. The man is taking photos of the woman. He then attempts to sit on the wooden puppet's left arm, which breaks immediately. The couple then leaves without notifying the museum staff.

Museum Staff: “He braced himself like this. (And then pressed down.) And then it came down.”

The wooden puppet is a piece of installation art that overlooks the sandpit. It is also the most popular spot to take photos. On April 10, a visitor ignored the warning sign and the puppet's arm ended up broken.

Fu Ya-chun, Employee, Tainan Shan-shang Garden & Old Waterworks Museum: “We specially placed a warning sign on the arm, but a visitor still decided to climb on.”

Visitor: “There is a sign specifically prohibiting this. If people still do this, then they have personal issues.”

Visitor: “It says you're not allowed to touch it because that could damage it. If you still touch it, then you're intentionally breaking the rules. It's already stated clearly.”

The installation art has been there for two years. The wood has become brittle as it's exposed to the elements due to its outdoor location, so the museum often sends people to maintain it. After a similar incident, the museum put up a "no climbing" sign. It didn't expect that visitors would ignore the sign. The museum hopes the couple will take responsibility by contacting it to discuss reparations.

 

 

 

 

監視器畫面上可以看到一對情侶,男方正在幫女方拍照,疑似要擺放不同的姿勢拍照,下一秒卻身體往上一跳跳上小木偶的左手,左手當場斷裂,不過當下兩人卻未立即向園方反映就離開。

園方示範該對情侶的拍照過程:「他就撐起來 (然後直接壓下去),然後就下來了。」

台南山上花園水道博物館園區內的親子沙坑深受歡迎,尤其再搭配小孩喜歡的小木偶裝置藝術,也成為園區內最熱門的拍照景點,不過昨(10)日一名遊客卻無視警告標語,小木偶的手再次斷裂。

台南山上花園水道博物館傅雅君指出:「我們特別在手臂上加註警告標語,但是這一次還是有民眾攀爬上去。」

遊客認為:「已經有寫禁止的告示牌,遊客還這樣做的話,確實是個人問題。」

另一名遊客也提到:「因為人家都寫禁止觸碰的話,就是怕破壞它或比較容易壞掉,如果還去觸碰的話,那就是明知故犯,人家都公告了。」

親子沙坑小木偶裝置藝術已啟用2年多,因長期放置戶外受風吹日曬,木頭早有脆化現象,所以會經常派人維護。先前已有類似案例,因此園方也製作「禁止攀爬」警語,沒想到還是有遊客視而不見,如今再度發生,園方也希望這名遊客能夠主動跟園方聯絡,儘速討論維修事宜。
