是我不懂藝術!一根香蕉居然標到這個價格,然后還有人吃了?
來源:21英語網    日期: 2019-12-09

一根香蕉多少錢?這個問題一時答不上來也沒關系,因為估計你無論如何也想不到它能標到這個價格:12萬美元!而且更令你想象不到的,還在后面……

上周,美國邁阿密海灘巴塞爾藝術展上,一根用膠帶粘住的香蕉,標出了12萬美元的天價!而這件藝術品背后的畫廊宣稱,這樣的藝術品有三件,其中兩件已經售出!

A banana, duct-taped to a wall went on a sale at Art Basel Miami Beach last week -- priced at around $120,000. And, according to the gallery behind the work, two of the three editions have already sold.



這幅作品名為“喜劇人”,包括一根從邁阿密當地雜貨店買的香蕉,和一截膠帶。這是意大利現代藝術家Maurizio Cattelan的作品。

Entitled "Comedian," the artwork comprises a banana bought in a Miami grocery store and a single piece of duct tape. The work, by Maurizio Cattelan, was presented last Wednesday.

而在售出前,展覽的創辦人Emmanuel Perrotin在接受CNN采訪時表示,這件藝術品“是全球貿易的象征,是雙關,是幽默的呈現”,藝術家把平凡的事物化作“喜悅與批判”的載體。

Prior to the reported sale, the gallery's founder, Emmanuel Perrotin, told CNN the bananas are "a symbol of global trade, a double entendre, as well as a classic device for humor," adding that the artist turns mundane objects into "vehicles of both delight and critique."


CNN在報道中則“一本正經”地指出:買家們應該了解到,這件藝術品并沒有作出聲明,一旦香蕉開始腐爛,該做何處理。

Potential buyers should note there are no clear instructions about what to do if the bananas start to decompose.

不過,在一份Emmanuel Perrotin提供的聲明中,還是寫清楚了這件藝術品的靈感來源。“當時,Cattelan正在思考做一件香蕉形狀的雕塑。每次他在旅行時,都會帶著香蕉,然后把香蕉掛在酒店里找靈感。他做了幾個模型,第一個是樹脂的,然后是銅的,還給上了色,但最后還是決定用真正的香蕉。”

According to a press statement from Galerie Perrotin, the artist first came up with the idea a year ago. "Back then, Cattelan was thinking of a sculpture that was shaped like a banana," it reads. "Every time he traveled, he brought a banana with him and hung it in his hotel room to find inspiration. He made several models: first in resin, then in bronze and in painted bronze (before) finally coming back to the initial idea of a real banana."

當然,這樣的藝術靈感激發了很多網友!蘋果、胡蘿卜甚至再來一卷膠帶,都可以!

The banana piece has inspired plenty of social media users who posted own interpretations of the artwork. Apple, carrot and gummed tape all became the objects of creation.
   




好了,如果故事到這里結束,無外乎是一件被標高價格的藝術品的故事。不過故事到這里依然延續:上周六,有人以藝術的名義,吃掉了這跟“價值”12萬美元的網紅香蕉。



工作人員表示,當天下午1點45分左右,行為藝術家David Datuna當著眾多藝術愛好者的面吃掉了這根香蕉。

The performance artist David Datuna ate the banana at around 1:45 p.m. in front of art lovers, according to gallery representatives.



David Datuna還在社交媒體上表示:自己表演的是“饑餓的藝術家”。“我很喜歡Cattelan的藝術品,也很喜歡這件藝術品的設置。很美味!”



有報道指出,在下午2時左右,畫廊方面重新粘了一根新的香蕉上去。

It's reported that the gallery re-taped a new banana to the wall after 2 p.m. the same day.

CNN報道顯示,組織者曾經表示如果有需要,香蕉是可以被替換的,原作者的說明也“故意不清晰”。然而在上周日的聲明中,畫廊方面表示出于安全考慮,整個藝術品已經被撤下了。

Organizers had previously confirmed to CNN that the banana can be replaced if needed, as the artist's instructions for the work are "intentionally imprecise." But in a statement last Sunday, the gallery announced that the installation had been removed altogether amid public safety concerns.

“巴塞爾藝術展與我們密切合作,布置了警衛人員。但是藝術品引發了難以控制的人流量,布置展覽也要為周邊安全、臨近展品的安全做出妥協。”

"Art Basel collaboratively worked with us to station guards and create uniform lines," it read. "However, the installation caused several uncontrollable crowd movements and the placement of the work on our booth compromised the safety of the artwork around us, including that of our neighbors."


 
值得一提的是,對于Cattelan而言,他的作品最近比較容易出狀況。

Cattelan以制作挑戰流行文化的雕塑知名。作品之一就包括一個由18K金打造、價值600萬美元的金馬桶。而今年9月金馬桶在英格蘭布萊尼姆宮(即丘吉爾莊園)展出時,卻被人鑿墻偷走。迄今,已有5人被捕。不過,盡管有懸賞公布,金馬桶卻依然下落不明。

Cattelan is known for sculptures that challenge popular culture. One of his artworks — an 18-carat-gold toilet valued at around $6 million — made headlines in September when it was ripped out of a wall and stolen from Bleinheim Palace in England. Five people have since been arrested in relation to the theft. A reward has been offered for the toilet's safe return, though it is yet to be recovered.
