Art Basel is currently taking place in Miami, and one of the most noteworthy moments was an art piece of a banana that was duct-taped to a wall selling for a total of $120,000. Now that very banana has been eaten by performance artist David Datuna⠀
The art piece, which was created by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan' started to make headlines after the selling price was revealed. However, on Saturday Datuna made a visit to see the piece and decided to take it off the wall and eat it. He posted the video of himself eating it to his social media and said in the caption,
“Hungry Artist” art performance by me. I love Maurizio Cattelan's artwork and I really love this installation, It’s very delicious.”
In conclusion our snitches at @tmz_tv, they spoke with Datuna after the incident, and he told them he was escorted to a private room where he was met by police and they took his information. He was not arrested or cited as of now.
