Environmental protest group Liberate Tate commemorated the Deepwater Horizon explosion yesterday by covering one of their own in oil-like goop inside Tate’s classical sculpture exhibit room.

The glazed activist stayed in a fetal position for 87 minutes, 1 for each day the BP Oil Spill vomited its 4.9 million barrels into the Gulf. The protest came with an open letter and petition against the cultural institution’s sponsorship ties with BP, which also supports the National Portrait Gallery and Royal Opera House. Earlier, there was also flash mob of a spread-out sleep-in, but that metaphor didn’t stick as well. (Photo: Immo Klink)
