Banana Duct-Taped to a Wall “Art Installation” Sells For $120,000

Piece called ‘Comedian’ – presumably because the artist is laughing all the way to the bank.

An “art installation” which consists of a banana duct-taped to a wall has sold for $120,000 at an art fair in Miami, Florida.

Organizers at the Art Basel Miami Beach exhibition said two editions of the ‘work’, created by “artist” Maurizio Cattelan each sold for $120,000 while the price of a third edition has been raised to $150,000.

The work is called ‘Comedian’ – presumably because Cattelan is laughing all the way to the bank.

“The banana is many things – a symbol of global trade, a witty double entendre, and a classic device for humour,” claimed a spokesperson for the art fair.

Art journalist Sarah Cascone says the piece is the “talk of the town in Miami right now,” with Cattelan having bought the banana from a Miami supermarket.

“You can tell if a society is collapsing when stuff like this becomes prevalent,” commented on Twitter user in response to the “art”.

Cattelan claims he spent a year working on the piece (yes he really said that), agonizing over whether to make the banana resin or bronze, but eventually just settling on a plain banana.

“In the end, one day I woke up and I said ‘the banana is supposed to be a banana’,” he said.

Cattelan plans to sell the third edition of the “art” to a museum, with two institutions having already expressed an interest in purchasing it.

Gallery owner Emmanuel Perrotin dismissed criticism that the piece was a joke, claiming that the shape of the fruit and the angle it has been fixed with duct tape to the wall gives it meaning.

As we document in the video below, this is absolute bullshit. It’s called ‘obscurantism’ and is used to fool people into overriding their immediate and correct reaction that a piece of art, in this case a banana stuck to a wall, is completely meaningless. It is completely meaningless.

Modern art is largely a money laundering scam, with galleries colluding to create the delusion that trash – sometimes literal trash – is art when in reality it’s an insult to any normal person’s intelligence.

DC Comics Artist Quits; Says Woke Superman Dropping ‘The American Way’ From Motto “Really Pissed Me Off”

“I’m finishing out my contract with DC. I’m tired of this sh*t, I’m tired of them ruining these characters; they don’t have a right to do this.”

An artist who worked for DC Comics has quit saying that he is “tired of them ruining these characters,” including Superman, after the company dropped ‘the American way’ from the hero’s famous motto.

Colorist Gabe Eltaeb revealed on a recent podcast “I’m finishing out my contract with DC. I’m tired of this sh*t, I’m tired of them ruining these characters; they don’t have a right to do this.”

“What really pissed me off was saying truth, justice, and a better world. F*ck that; it was ‘truth, justice, and the American way,'” Eltaeb further stated.

“My Grandpa almost died in World War II; we don’t have a right to destroy sh*t that people died for to give us. It’s a bunch of f*cking nonsense,” Eltaeb urged.

The artist, who worked on the much maligned “Son of Kal-El” Superman books in which Clark Kent’s son comes out as a bi-sexual social justice warrior, also spoke about the abuse he has been subjected to for his opinion on the comic book characters being ruined.

“They call us bigots and racist and sh*t,” Eltaeb noted, adding “I would ask them, find me in the f*cking mainstream, not on the fringes, one f*cking book, one f*cking t-shirt, one movie that says that leftism is bad, and conservatism is good, find it for me, they f*cking won’t. They’re not letting people have a voice, they’re the f*cking bigots.”

The podcast host Ethan Van Sciver added “You cannot come out and be a conservative and criticize the company that you work for in this way. You have to be completely supportive of the corporate agenda, whatever it is.”

“You have to keep your negative or critical opinions to yourself, and it’s so liberating to be able to not work for DC comics and be able to say exactly what you think,” Sciver emphasised, adding “And I think that’s what Gabe is going through here.”

    Exactly As Trump Predicted: ‘Racist’ Jefferson Statue To Be Removed At NYC Council

    History is being systematically erased and rewritten while media clowns pretend it isn’t happening

    A 200-Year-Old Thomas Jefferson statue is to be removed from the chambers of the New York City council after a unanimous vote by the nine members of the Mayoral appointed Public Design Commission.

    Several lawmakers testified that the statue is ‘offensive’, with Democratic Assemblyman Charles Barron of Brooklyn even declaring that Jefferson was a “slaveholding pedophile.” 

    Barron added “I think it should be put in storage somewhere, destroyed or whatever.”

    Barron continued, “How the hell can people see as a hero someone who had hundreds of enslaved Africans, someone who was a racist and who said we were inferior and someone who was a slaveholding pedophile?”

    He further proclaimed that “For [Jefferson] to be canonized in a statue is incredible — incredibly racist.”

    The New York Post notes that in 1834 the statue was given to the city by Uriah Phillips Levy, “the nation’s first Jewish Naval commodore and an admirer of Jefferson’s belief in religious freedom.”

    The New York Times notes of the statue that “The painted plaster version was later donated to New Yorkers and arrived at City Hall around 1834. When it first arrived in New York, Levy charged to view it and used the proceeds to feed the poor. It was installed in the City Council Chamber in the 1910s.”

    A local ABC affiliate reports that the statue is “expected to go on ‘long term loan’ to the New-York Historical Society by the end of the year, where it would be included in educational exhibits with the proper historical context that likely will include discussion of Jefferson’s slave ownership.”

    NYC Mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa expressed opposition to the move, asking “Do we suddenly wipe out the images, the markings, the names of all those great patriots because they were slaveholders and slave holding was quite common at that time?”

    Republican City council member Joe Borelli also accused NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio of waging a “progressive war on history.” 

    “The de Blasio administration will continue the progressive war on history as he, himself, fades away into a portrait on a City Hall wall,” the Staten Island member told the New York Post. 

    Back in 2017, after statues of Confederate figures were targeted, President Trump predicted that soon enough it would be statues of Jefferson and Washington that would face the axe.

    “This week it’s Robert E. Lee. I noticed that Stonewall Jackson is coming down. I wonder, is George Washington next week and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after? You really do have to ask yourself: ‘Where does it stop?’” Trump asked at the time.

    The media said Trump was overreacting and pointing to a ‘false slippery slope’.

    John Oliver devoted an entire segment to mocking Trump over the statement:

    Wrong.

    Trump was 100% correct.

    Again.

    It hasn’t stopped. History is being systematically erased.

    Earlier this year we reported on the woke mob succeeding in influencing a MUSEUM in New York to remove a statue of former President Theodore Roosevelt.
