Spent a year on this work of art: to be Sold for one million

A work of art, if property value in Denmark does not exceed the forward dollars are at a gallery in Miami, in the united states has been sold for 120.000 crowns - two times.

And you have to have your fingers in the third and final copy of the artwork must hive 150,000 dollars, equivalent to one million kroner, up pocket.

It writes among other CNN.

the Artwork consists of a banana, which is set up on a wall with a piece of duct tape.

the Reason for the high price, among other things, that the man behind is the Italian Maurizio Cattelan, among other things, previously gained worldwide fame by making a toilet of gold called 'America'. A work of art, which among other things has been offered to the us president, Donald Trump.

But where the materials in the italienerens toilet itself had a high value, the same can hardly be said of his latest work, which has received the title of 'Comedian', or 'Comedian' in English.

the Banana is exhibited in Art Basel Miami Beach through the gallery Perrotin, and here explains the founder of the Emmanuel Perotin, bananas are 'a symbol of global trade, an ambiguity, as well as a classic comedy tool'. He says that Cattelan has a habit of turning everyday things into 'objects for both joy and criticism'.

According to a press release from the gallery, it has supposedly taken the artist a year to complete the development of his idea.

- at the Time I thought Cattelan on a sculpture that was shaped like a banana. Every time he traveled, he had a banana with him, and he hung it in his hotel room to be inspired. He made several models: First, in the resin, so in bronze and painted bronze before he ended up with the original idea of a banana, says the press release.

The first two buyers were, respectively, a French woman and a French man who both paid the modest 120.000 dollars (approximately 800.000 euros) for each edition of the work, writes Artnet.

Subsequently decided Perrotin and Cattelan in the community to set the price of the last edition, up to 150,000 dollars. The edition is scheduled to be sold to a museum.

the Artwork can of course not keep forever, as there is talk about a real banana. Buyers of the work has therefore 'allowed' to switch the banana out, when you think of nature's cycle has been too hard on it. How often it should be done is, however, unclear.

Perrotin, however, intend to throw the banana, at the time of writing are exhibited, out after a week - with less the buyer will have the.

Perrotin rejects, in fact, that the artwork was supposed to be meant as a joke, since it is claimed that there is thought of every detail, right from its form to its angle on the wall and its location on a wall with plenty of space around it.

And then we'll otherwise leave it up to the Magazine's savvy readers to assess whether that idea is worth a million bucks.
