“See You After Jail Guys”: Art World Stunned After Man Eats $120,000 Banana Duct Taped To Wall
On Friday, we reported on the latest bizarre milestone in the “art” world, when a banana duct-taped to a wall sold for $120,000 at that excess-liquidity conclave of ultra rich and other wannabe poseurs known Art Basel Miami Beach. Worse, a second banana duct-taped to a wall also sold for $120,000. Yet even worse than that, a third banana duct-taped to a wall is expected to sell for $150,000 and so on.
Then on Saturday, at around 1:45pm, the art world was shocked when a random man, allegedly a performance artist, ate said duct-taped banana that sold earlier this week for $120,000.
New York-based performance artist David Datuna ate the banana early on Saturday afternoon in front of a stunned convention full of “art” lovers most of whom had no idea whether they were witnessing even more “art”, of just some clueless rando eating the world’s most discussed “art” exhibit, the gallery told the Miami Herald. – zerohedge
