A man ate a banana duct-taped to a wall at a Miami art fair on Saturday, consuming an expensive piece of modern artwork.
The banana installation was on display at the Perrotin gallery of Art Basel, one of the world’s most high-profile art fairs. The talk of the event, a French art collector bought it earlier in the week for $120,000.
On Saturday afternoon, New York-based artist David Datuna removed the banana from the wall before peeling and eating it. He told stunned onlookers that he was “hungry” and that the snack was an “art performance” called “Hungry Artist.” Pluralist.com
