In news that could only seem at home in 2019, a $120,000 work of art consisting of a banana duct-taped to a wall was ripped from its perch and eaten by a performance artist.
Yup, that’s one expensive snack.
David Datuna posted video of his performance piece, which he calls "Hungry Artist."
The banana, which had made headlines after selling for $120,000 at Art Basel in Miami Beach, was created by artist Maurizio Cattelan. The Italian artist sold two editions the piece, called “Comedian”, to private collectors for $120,000 each.
