Painted Bronze

180 x 205 x 25mm


You must be having a giraffe (laugh)! This is not a giraffe, it’s a banana stuck to the wall with duct tape and now at a point of decompositional stasis. The work, a successful trompe l’oeil, cast bronze, painted and sculptured to resemble a black banana stuck to the art fair booth by Duct tape. Referencing the artwork cultural moment/meme Comedian by Maurizio Cattelan. On the inner curve of the banana, is a Rainforest alliance sticker, a picture of a cute Amazonian tree frog, which alludes to the real Amazon which is cut down and replaced by single crop banana plantations, to fed western consumer needs, not so cute.
