Student ate NOK 1.2 million worth of art

An art student from Seoul National University recently attended an exhibition at the Yeom Museum of Art in South Korea.

According to him, he was unable to keep his fingers off the plate CNN.

was hungry

When he came to the “comic” artwork, consisting of a banana and duct tape, he enjoyed the art — literally.

The student ate a banana by Maurizio Cattelan, worth NOK 1.2 million.

The person would have swallowed the banana almost whole, before pinning the peel back to the wall.

It happened suddenly, so no special measures were taken.

The peel was later replaced with a fresh banana by the museum, and the bananas in the artwork are usually replaced every two to three days.

Not the first time

In 2019, “Comedian” sold for $120,000, which is approximately NOK 1.2 million, at Art Basel Miami Beach. Two more copies of the work were sold at the exhibition.

Artist Cattelan was informed of the incident in South Korea, but did not respond.

It’s probably not so strange, since it’s not the first time this has happened.

In 2019, entertainer David Datuna ate bananas from the first edition of “The Comedian.”

He later claimed that the act was an art show, not vandalism.

California artist Joe Mordford has also previously claimed that “Comedian” is a plagiarism of his work “Bananas and Oranges” from 2000.

Morford’s lot had a banana and an orange taped to a green wall.

“I did this in 2000, but someone stole my trash and pimped me out for 120k in 2019. Plagiarism, or?” Earlier wrote to the public Facebook posts.
