Art Basel Miami Beach is selling taping banana for $120,000 each.
Art Basel Miami Beach 2019 has a new art work, Banana tapped in the wall. The artist said that when she started dating her present husband, the decor of their apartment included a banana that he and his roommates had drunkenly taped to the wall. There the banana stayed all semester, through winter break, and later it ended till the final.
Later of their junior years they took the banana down but saved it. Only to once again display the shriveled husk in pride and the place was above the common room couch. Just after 12 years later, they still have the banana in a plastic bag somewhere in their apartment.
In Art Basel Miami imagine how was the surprise when the artist arrived at the VIP preview in the gallery. As it was for Art Basel Miami Beach and discovered a lots of best art works for the artists. One of the painting was from Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan. He did exactly the same thing like other artists of the Basel. The most important painting of this super hero artist is difference being, of course, that this version of his work is sourced from a local Miami supermarket. It was also on sale from Perrotin and the cost is really so cool that is only $120,000.
The artist of Art Basel Miami Beach said that they have sold the artwork already. It was the announcement of the triumphant Emmanuel Perrotin as the artist took a close look at the piece, titled Comedian. The painting buyer who was a French woman also bought painting from the gallery before. It was for the first time for her to buy the art work by Cattelan.
The second art work of Miami Basel 2019 also was sold to a French man. Perrotin told him about the banana and also told to reassure him that the banana would age well. The collector of the banana threatened to buy that one instead. I want to tell that Cattelan hasn’t prescribed rules for how often the banana will be replaced. At that moment Perrotin expects to throw out the one currently on view at the end of the week and the reason was that unless, of course, the collector wants it.
So the art basel Miami banana was sold second time. Perrotin quickly texted about this to Cattelan, and the two agreed to raise the price of the banana to $150,000 for the third edition of the work. They decided to sell it to a museum. By this time two institutions have already expressed interest as the gallery told us about this. It was that two artists proofs of the work and from them only one of which is for sale just now.
The Art Basel Miami banana just was prepared by Cattelan is known for being something of an art world prankster. The artist was Perrotin and he was quick to dismiss the idea that Comedian is a joke. Here every aspect of the work was carefully considered and it was from the shape of the fruit. The angle its been affixed with duct tape that was fixed to the wall. The placement in the booth and front and center was really on a large wall. It could have easily fit a much larger painting as the artist said.
