Banksy painting ‘self destructs’ at end of auction

blairsh

I'm tired.
Sounds like something JML would sell. *The fantastic remote shredding photo frame from JML* " Tired of the same old picture in the same old frame? Simply press the remote shredding device and the discreet in build shredder destroys the existing picture which you can then replace with a nice new one!" ONLY FROM JML!

Pointless.

Top trolling :D
It's fantastic. I love it. Look at their faces...:D

They'll pawn it off as performance art though and the shredded pieces will become even more valuable...cos it's true ART.

Banksy must have been piss ing himself laughing...:D

Third world war tried to make something that destroyed the stylus and made you shit yourself at the end of side 2 of their first LP (1970). Debord's memoires had a sandpaper cover designed to scratch or ruin coffee tables other books etc (1959).

Well ahead of the game again eh robin?
Indeed. See my post above.

Some Durruti Column KP cover in sand paper too no?

I vaguely remember reading that traditional Navajo sand paintings were destroyed - swept away or allowed to be blown away at the end of the day they were made.

I used to into this stuff 20odd years ago.

Can't remember much these days though.

The following psytrance is baṉned: All
As if the people at the auction house didn’t know.

“Oh yeah, lets hang this painting in a suspiciously large frame on the wall and plug it into the mains”
The frame had built-in lights all as part of the piece. It's not beyond reasonable doubt imo.
Still worht it for the looks on their faces though :D

Dissapointed in that DC stunt. An album named after a SI cartoon with a cover nicked from a debord 'book'.

Why is the shredded paper grey compared to the as yet unshredded top part?

Is the actual picture simply being rolled up inside the frame, whilst a pre-shredded photo copy is rolled out at the back?

Would have been better if it had happened away from the spectacle, when hung on the wall/stored in the investment warehouse of whatever rich fucker bought it (though don't know how that would technically be achieved if its not guaranteed to be plugged in). I do like the faces in that photo though.

I love it.
I love the idea behind it...the finger to the art world...the faces of the crowd...
Because he's right.
It's all rubbish.
It's all the emperor's new clothes...
Fair play to him for showing them how ridiculous the Art World is.
