Here’s a weird one for ya. Cops arrested a man last Wednesday night after he was trapped inside Artifact on Orchard Street. The gallery had an opening show for Jon Aslak Fintland, and this “attendee” decided to hide out in the bathroom for a place to stay.
The owner of Artifact explained via email:
He came out after the gallery was locked, triggered the alarm, got scared and frantically tried to escape. Our security company dispatched the police and the individual was taken to the 7th precinct.
We are told that the “intruder” had no place to stay and was planning to camp out until morning when he would then ask for a job.
Breaking the law to get a job. Kinda like Warren in Empire Records.
