They say food is an art and the one who cooks is the artist. And, most of us will agree with this idea. Right? When a bowl of butter chicken is presented on a table with oodles of cream and coriander dressings, the dining experience sees an elevation. Relatable, did we hear? Over the years, we have seen how food items have become an integral part of art. Well, now, a bizarre incident related to a banana artwork has cropped up on the internet.

It’s from Leeum Museum of Art in South Korea. The artwork, which includes a banana duct-taped to a wall, by Maurizio Cattelan. It is part of his exhibition “WE”.

Everything looked okay until an art student decided to eat the banana and attached its peel to the wall. Reason? He was hungry. Wait, there is more. The price of the artwork is estimated to be $120,000 (Rs 1 crore).

As per a report by the BBC, the student identified as Noh Huyn-soo was hungry as he had skipped breakfast.

In the video, the student is seen walking up to the artwork and taking the banana off the wall and relishing it. He then pastes the peel with the duck tape and walks away.

Noh Huyn-soo, who studies at the Seoul National University, said, “Damaging an artwork could also be seen as an artwork, I thought that would be interesting… Isn’t it taped there to be eaten?”

Reportedly, the banana is replaced every two-three days. When Maurizio Cattelan was informed about the incident, he said, “No problem at all.”

Well, this isn’t the first time when a person decided to relish (literally) the banana art. Before this, David Datuna ate the banana after the artwork was sold for $120,000 (£91,000).
