On Saturday, December 7, the artist shocked visitors to the Art Basel show in Miami Beach when he grabbed a banana glued to the gallery wall and ate it.

In fact, the banana was a work of art by the Italian artist Maurizio Cattelana under the name "Comedian" and was previously sold to a French collector for $ 120 000.

An American artist of Georgian descent, David Datuna, who lives in New York, posted a video on his Instagram account, which shows how he approaches a banana and removes it from the wall.

“Artistic performance ... a hungry artist,” he said, peeling a fruit and taking a bite. "Thank you, very tasty."

A few witnesses could be heard giggling before an excited gallery representative arrived at the scene. The incident was quickly and peacefully resolved.

"The Hungry Artist" - art performance I performed 🙂. I love the work of Maurizio Cattelan and I really love this installation. It's delicious, ”Datong captioned the video of the incident on his page in Instagram.

“He did not destroy the work of art. Banana is an idea, ”said Lucienne Terrace, director of public relations for Galerie Perrotin.

As it turned out, the value of the work lies in the certificate of authenticity. Banana can be replaced as many times as you like.

Therefore, a new banana was glued to the wall 15 minutes after the Datuna stunt.

“It brought a lot of tension and attention to the stand,” Terrace said. - But the reaction was great. She brought a smile to the faces of many people. "

Cattelan is best known for his fully functioning 18 carat gold toilet called America, which he once offered to buy for US President Donald Trump.

The toilet, valued at $ 5 – 6 million, was again in the news in September 2019, when it was stolen from the British Blenheim Palace.
