    Background: AN ART EXHIBITION CALLED "MOVEMENT IN MODERN ART" OPENED SEPT 22 AT THE LOUISIANA ART CENTRE AT HUMLEBECK, DENMARK. TO MAKE THE OPENING AN UNFORGETTABLE EVENT, FRENCH ARTIST JEAN TINGUELY BUILT SOMETHING HE CALLED "THE END OF THE WORLD" ON THE ART CENTRE'S LAWN.

    ATOP THIS CREATION MADE FROM SCRAP-IRON, TINGUELY PLACED A LIVE DOVE IN A BASKET, AND FIREWORKS WERE ATTACHED TO THE BICYCLE FRAMES ETC. THE GENERAL IDEA WAS THAT THE DOVE, HELD CAPTIVE IN THE BOX BY A WIRE LATCH, WOULD BE RELEASED WHEN THE FIREWORKS WERE EXPLODED. UNFORTUNATELY, THE MECHANISM FAILED AND THE DOVE WAS KILLED.

    THE DANISH SOCIETY FOR THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS ARE INVESTIGATING THE INCIDENT - WHICH MADE FRONT-PAGE NEWS IN DANISH NEWSPAPERS - AND THE POLICE TOO ARE REPORTED TO HAVE TAKEN AN INTEREST.
