A banana duct-taped to a wall.  Not only is it art, it just sold for $120,000 at a Miami art show. The installation, called ‘Comedian’, is the work of Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, who unveiled it at Art Basel this week.

A spokeswoman explained the piece by saying “The banana is many things – a symbol of global trade, a witty double entendre, and a classic device for humor”.   One of Cattelan’s previous creations was a solid gold toilet that made headlines last year when it was stolen from a British palace.

How much would you pay for a banana duct-taped to a wall?  Is the art world just one big scam?
