    Banana Duct Taped To A Wall

    Whenever I'm travelling I like to visit an art gallery or exhibition, I like to think I can understand why things are valued and apreciated as art, however when I read the below quote from that article...


    "The banana is many things - a symbol of global trade, a witty double entendre, and a classic device for humour.
    "Maurizio takes mundane objects and transforms them into vehicles of both delight and critique."



    ... I ask myself how? How in the holy **** is taping a banana to a wall a symbol of all of that?

    This is true: some of us need to tape our walloper to our inside leg. I get it


    Actually that isn't true.

    You're right, but we live in an impressionist era where big windaes are glass curtains so anything is possible.

    The so called artist who so called created it did it as a tongue in cheek statement about the stupidity of modern art.

    It was never meant to be taken seriously................

    Almost as outrageous as the sums Jack Vetteriano gets for his colouring ins.

    Maurizio Cattelan is very clever. He's intentionally provocative and sometimes he just takes the piss. It seems plenty have fallen for it hook, line and sinker on this occasion.

    It’s all very well to describe his ‘work’ as you have PB, but there is no way that important and serious galleries would go along with a joke and piss-take for the fun of it. There again, way back in the early 20th century, the Dadaists produced works which stuck the tongue out at traditional academic art, and are now considered important participants in the development of modern art. Take for example, ‘Urinal’ by Marcel Duchamp. Folk thought he was literally taking the piss, but he had the last laugh.

    But of course people will take it seriously and try to seem edgy by justifying the value of the banana by saying it's a symbol of this and that...
    When in reality, it's a f***ing banana taped to wall.

    ..... just as a painting is just raw materials mixed with water or oil, stuck on a bit of paper or cloth, but arranged to offer some sort of meaning or tangible form. Or a sculpture is just metal or stone or clay, in a heap or arranged to offer some sort of meaning or tangible form.

    The essence of a work of art boils down to the idea or concept which the artist is trying to convey. The importance or value of the work is shaped largely by how much someone is willing to pay to own the idea or to keep the idea in existence. There is little or no value in the ingredients of a work of art.

    It is too easy to dismiss modern art as a con or piss take.

    On a lighter note, I prefer to have my banana, sliced in a bowl of muesli with a splash of milk. :

    I think the ideas of concept and value are key.

    When Damien Hirst was producing his 'Spots' works every other person said 'I could have done that, it's just some circles'. The key point is thought that none of them did do it. Hirst did. He had the idea, he executed it, he sold the idea and the concept. The actual technical difficulty of the work wasn't what drove the value it was the concept behind it and the story: 'To create that structure, to do those colours, and do nothing'.

    If you showed someone with no idea of what they were looking at an image of, as na example, Picasso's 'Three Musicians' I wonder how many would realise it was the work of one of the most celebrated, collectible and financially lucrative artists who had ever lived. Number 17A by Jackson Pollock sold for over $200M, at it's base level it's some paint splashed on a canvas, but it's not; it's much, much more than that,
