Maybe it might have passed you by, but in recent days an unusual piece of art has gone completely viral. This is because it is a ripe banana glued to a wall with tape.
What was known as Art Basel Banana is actually called 'Comedian'. It is a conceptual work by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan shown at Art Basel Miami Beach this week.
It went viral after being sold for $ 120,000, and Nokia did not miss the opportunity to play with the situation. In the official Twitter shared image of the brand, we see the banana phone taped to a wall.
Nokia took advantage of hype to promote 'Banana Phone'
“Bananas are delicious, but a banana that can make calls? This is a work of art! ”Wrote Nokia in its publication. The device in question is the recently relaunched Nokia 8810 4G.
Whether the original piece is art or not, we leave it to the experts. However, Nokia's idea was truly hilarious, and undoubtedly a beautiful marketing blow to the company owned by global HMD.
If you want to know more about the history of this 'work of art', I leave you below a Vogue article where the concept is explained. Is Duchamp's Legacy Alive? It's very likely.
