Banana Duct-Taped To Wall Art Sells For $120k

SourceSKY NEWS

Sky News:- A banana duct-taped to a wall has been sold by an artist for $120,000 (£91,000).

The installation by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan went on display at the Art Basel Miami Beach exhibition this week.

Organisers say two editions of the work, called Comedian, each sold for around $120,000 (£91,000) – and the price of a third edition has now reportedly been raised to $150,000 (£114,000).

Cattelan previously created the solid gold toilet stolen from Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire earlier this year.

A spokeswoman for Art Basel Miami Beach told Sky News: “After a 15-year hiatus, Maurizio has returned to the international art fair, and we are so fortunate to collaborate with him.

“The banana is many things – a symbol of global trade, a witty double entendre, and a classic device for humour.
