The state of modern art. From Harambe at notthebee.com:
Last Thursday, Noh Huyn-soo, a student at Seoul National University, visited the Leeum Museum of Art in South Korea and he got a little hungry.
Noh had skipped breakfast that morning and while wandering the halls of the museum he spotted a banana taped to the wall, and I guess the hunger got the best of him as he decided to treat himself to a snack right then and there.
The banana taped to the wall is a piece of art valued at $120,000.
Some museum-goers were SHOCKED when Noh started chowing down on the banana, and one person even got a video which is posted to Instagram.
The best part?
After he was done eating, which he took more than a minute to do, he politely taped the peel back to the wall.
Him eating the symbol of modern “art” was more artistic than any of the butt-ugly modernism I’ve seen in my entire life!
He picked up on the symbolism too:
In a subsequent interview with the local news outlet KBS, Noh argued that “damaging a work of modern art could also be artwork.”
“Isn’t it taped there to be eaten?”
That’s about the price of a Big Mac now isn’t it?
That is about the price of a Big Mac now is it not?
