Friday, Heroin, and Memes: CHCA U.S. NEWS OXY ART PROTEST Jun 25 | A 10 foot long sculpture made to look like a spoon used to cook heroin was unloaded outside of Purdue Pharma's headquarters Boston-based sculptor Domenic Esposito unloaded a 10 foot long sculpture of a spoon intended to resemble the the utensil used to cook heroin in front of Purdue Pharma’s headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut. Purdue Pharma are the makers of the painkiller OxyContin, and have received a lot of criticism from legislators, regulators and relatives of the dead about their drug leading to dependency and serving as a gateway to other narcotics like heroin. ___ The spoon sculpture was unveiled Friday morning, and was removed that afternoon on orders of the police. The gallery owner, Fernando Luis Alvarez, was arrested and led away in handcuffs after refusing to move the spoon sculpture that was blocking Purdue’s driveway. “I think this is an important matter,” Mr. Alvarez said. “People are dying.” ___ Purdue spokesman, Robert Josephson said in a statement: - “We share the protesters’ concern about the opioid crisis and respect their right to peacefully express themselves.” ___ Esposito spent about six weeks rendering the spoon from steel. The artist said it was intended to reflect the experience of a relative who started to use OxyContin and Percocet experimentally before turning to heroin. ___ Photo: Gregg Vigliotti | The New York Times
