Do you want $120,000??
Take a ripe banana and stick it to a wall with a piece of duct tape and call it “Comedian” (a special medal for the name, please)
You just created a masterpiece worth $120,000.
Some extra specifications though; you have to be controversial Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan.
Swear he just fixed my big-nose insecurities.
Well, his last legendary artwork was an 18-Karat gold fully functioning toilet, titled “America”
So, this guy taped a ripe banana to a wall at an Art Basel exhibition in Miami Beach, Florida (Florida…now I am not surprised). And sold its authentication certificate for an insane amount. It comes with instruction to change banana every 2 days, when it’s ripe.
Like, thanks for adding another chore to our already hectic adult lives.
Well played Maurizio! you already sound like IKEA or my mom.
And fun doesn’t end here…
A performance artist, David Datuna, just stepped forward in broad day light, snatched the banana and ate it in front of horrified audience.
You monkey man!!
We will talk about what “horrified audience” exactly means when we talk about Banksy’s “love is in the bin”
Right now focus on banana!
So this is the latest catastrophe or revolution in modern art world.
Honestly now I understand why realists freaked out when fauvism surfaced.
I don’t know what’s going on people, here after numerous art works, I haven’t mustered up courage to put a price on a single one and always wonder who is going to pay for that??
And random bananas are making people rich.
But then I never sculpted an 18-Karat loo (btw, which got stolen recently), I’m not a controversial Italian artist … and I’m not in Florida…
