I guess it deserved it.
Remember the banana duct-taped to a wall and labeled “art” that sold for $120,000? On Saturday, a New York man walked up to the art installation and ate the banana.
The banana art, titled “Comedian,” was the work of Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan. It’s a part of Emmanuel Perrotin’s outer gallery wall at Art Basel in Miami Beach. The piece sold for $120,000 to a French art collector.
Around 1:45 p.m. in front of a convention center full of art lovers, New York-based performance artist David Datuna ate the banana, gallery representatives told the Miami Herald.
He called it “Hungry Artist.”
A dismayed Peggy Leboeuf, a partner at Perrotin Gallery, frantically told Datuna, “But you’re not supposed to touch the art!”
The gallery reported the incident to security, but Datuna slipped away.
Lucien Terras, director of museum relations, said the work was still salvageable.
Imagine living in a world where this makes sense.
Yeah, it’s still salvageable. You still have the duct tape, the wall and the peel.
The banana was going to rot anyway.
And it doesn’t matter to anyone involved. In fact, I assume the eater was in on this whole show.
Modern “art” is only about humiliating the goyim while laundering money. They’re trying to make their laundering scheme as humiliating as possible for the people who think it’s a real thing.
