Man Who Ate ‘Banana Duct-Taped to Wall’ Art Says He Did it to “Create Art”

And who could argue with him?

Published

on

The man who ate an ‘art’ piece that consisted of a banana duct-taped to a wall says he did it to “create art.”

As we previously highlighted, the fruit-based exhibit sold for $120,000 at an art fair in Miami, Florida.

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.

Within days however, it was scoffed by David Datuna, (before subsequently being replaced with scrawled writing which read ‘Epstein didn’t kill himself’).

“It wasn’t vandalism, it was art performance from me and absolutely I am not sorry,” Datuna said during a press conference.

“In this case, it’s not like I ate art,” he added. “Like the gallery said, it’s not a banana, it’s a concept. And I just ate the concept of the artist. So I think this is cool, this is fun, this is what art is about.”

Datuna, who called his performance ‘Hungry Artist’, gave all his information to police but doesn’t believe he will be charged with any crime.

Datuna has succeeded in underscoring what we already knew – most modern conceptual art is talentless trash.

If everything can be considered art then nothing is art.

In reality, as I explain in the video below, objective standards of beauty do exist and in a world of nihilistic relativism need to be re-asserted more than ever before.

Video: More Idiots Allowed To Damage Priceless Art In Latest ‘Climate Protest’

Why were they allowed to return for a photo op?

More ‘climate change activists’ were allowed to vandalise a valuable artwork in Milan, Italy Sunday in the latest display of pointless attention seeking adolescent petulance.

Three youths and an older woman from a group that calls itself ‘Last Generation’ managed to throw flour all over a Andy Warhol piece, before being incomprehensibly allowed to return to the scene and sit cross legged on the ground next to the work like stubborn toddlers refusing to play nice.

The work they targeted was Warhol’s BMW Art Car, a painted sports car from 1979 that resides in Milan’s Fabbrica del Vapore.

The group had planned to glue themselves to the car windows, but were dragged away before they had the chance, according to reports.

Further footage shows they were, however, brought back to sit in front of the car for the media.

The elder woman, a university researcher wearing a shirt on which was scrawled “we have 858 days left,” stated that “staying in the classroom or in workshop with my students without trying everything possible to get governments to do their part has become unbearable to me,” further declaring that she was helping “the last generation on the face of the planet that can still do something.”

BMW’s cultural engagement department issued a response noting “Art is as priceless as it is untouchable. It belongs to all of humanity and reflects the great achievements of which each of us is capable. Andy Warhol’s 1979 Art Car is a unique masterpiece and we have no sympathy for a violent attack on the artist’s work defaced for many decades.”

As we highlighted last week, dozens of museums issued a statement condemning the attacks and stating that they are “deeply shaken by their risky endangerment.”

The culprits believe that attention-seeking to propagandize for climate change activism, a cause amplified by virtually every major media outlet, corporation, the entertainment industry, cultural institution, government and academia, is some kind of rebellious, edgy statement.

It isn’t.

How about the vandals do us all a favour and go after this shit instead?

    They’re about to desecrate Notre Dame by turning it into a shrine for the new religion of climate change.

    The rest of it will be a globalist “theme park” for the entertainment of rich Chinese and Arab tourists.
