A banana duct-taped to a wall went on a sale at the Art Basel art fair in Miami Beach this week, priced at around $120,000. According to the gallery behind the work, two of the three editions have already sold, with the last now going for even more. The work by Maurizio Cattelan is titled “Comedian” and it comprises a banana bought in a Miami grocery store and a single piece of duct tape. The bananas are “a symbol of global trade, a double entendre, as well as a classic device for humor,” said the founder of the gallery Perrotin, which presented the work. Potential buyers should note there are no clear instructions about what to do if the bananas start to decompose. (📸: Courtesy Maurizio Cattelan/Perrotin)

  1. Lamentablemente por eso existe el comunismo y socialismo… debería dar vergüenza y ni publicarlo. Cuantas bananas o comidas por 120.000$ pueden salvar vidas de niños en hambruna!!!
