The Joker 


MERCH: 🍌🍌🍌


Maurizio Cattelan created his first work in 15 years, December 4th, for Art Basel in Miami.

A French collector paid $120,000 to the Perrotin Gallery for this performance work titled “ The Comedian” by the controversial, polarizing artist Maurizio . A second edition was placed with another French collector, selling for the same price just two hours and 15 minutes later. 1 more edition of this installation is to be selling for an increased price of 150,000 as well. There are also two artists proofs of the work, only one of which is for sale.

You may wonder if this is a hoax, but Emmanuel Perrotin denies any farce behind “The Comedian”. Or Maurizio Cattelan intentions of his work. When asked if the piece was a joke he replied “Every aspect of the work was carefully considered, from the shape of the fruit, to the angle its been affixed with duct tape to the wall, to its placement in the booth—front and center, on a large wall that could have easily fit a much larger painting”. Emmanuel Perrotin proclaimed

con·cep·tu·al art /kənˈsep(t)SH(əw)əl ärt/ noun art in which the idea presented by the artist is considered more important than the finished product, if there is one. In an artist statement

Cattelan states he has been working on the idea for Comedian for about a year, first creating versions in bronze and resin. “Wherever I was traveling I had this banana on the wall. I couldn’t figure out how to finish it,” Cattelan told Sarah Cascone “In the end, one day I woke up and I said ‘the banana is supposed to be a banana.'” The Artist told Sara that he was inspired by many of the large works he has been seeing in Miami. “I’m not in Miami, but I’m sure it’s full of paintings as well,” said Cattelan. “I thought maybe a banana could be a good contribution!” The artist and the gallerist took great time determining the price, balancing an amount that was high enough to make it art but not so outlandish as to be discounted You may recall Cattalen's 24 Golden Toilet valued at 6 million dollars being stolen, and you may wonder if this new art at risk? Sarah Cascone reports that “ Despite the artwork’s hefty price tag, Perrotin isn’t worried about someone stealing Comedian. There’s a spare banana on hand in the booth, and more importantly, without the artist’s certificate of authenticity, it reverts to being just a banana. In a way, explained Perrotin, securing a buyer for the piece completed the artwork. “A work like that,” he said, “if you don’t sell the work, it’s not a work of art.”-
