Sotheby’s has said that the buyer behind Banksy’s Girl with Balloon (2006), which appeared to self-destruct after selling at auction in London last week, has decided to keep the work. The partially shredded artwork has now been renamed Love is in the Bin (2018).

The painting by the street artist sold for GBP£1042,000 at a Sotheby’s auction last Friday evening. But just as the sale was hammered down, the artwork – which was the final lot of the night – seemed to drop from its faux-gilt frame, peeling itself into ribbons and triggering a security alarm. The artist later released a short film of himself hiding a shredder in the picture frame.

Alex Branczik, Sotheby’s head of contemporary art, Europe, who earlier speculated that Banksy’s self-shredding stunt could have made the work ‘more valuable’, said in a statement: ‘Banksy didn’t destroy an artwork in the auction, he created one.’ Branczik described it as ‘the first artwork in history to have been created live during an auction.’

The buyer, who has been identified as a female European collector and longtime Sotheby’s client, commented: ‘When the hammer came down last week and the work was shredded, I was at first shocked, but gradually I began to realize that I would end up with my own piece of art history.’. The work has been given a new certificate by Pest Control, offical authenticator of Banksy’s work.

Opinion has been divided over the prank, with some hailing it as an avant-garde act of self-destruction and criticism of the art market (Banksy himself has cited Picasso’s maxim, ‘The urge to destroy is also a creative urge’). Others speculated that the auction house might have been in on the stunt from the beginning, and that the value of the work had significantly increased.

新闻/新闻2018年10月12日新闻/新闻2018年10月12日在上周苏富比拍卖会上,看起来自毁的“带气球的女孩”重生“礼貌:苏富比6021602img.礼貌:苏富比苏富比”。据说,上周在伦敦拍卖时卖出的《Banksy’s GirlwithBall.》(2006)似乎自毁。部分被切碎的艺术品现在已经被改名为“爱”在垃圾桶里(2018)。星期五晚上,街头艺术家的画作在苏富比拍卖会上以1042000英镑的价格售出。但就在拍卖被敲定的时候,这幅艺术品——这是当晚的最后一批——似乎从仿金框上掉下来,剥落成丝带,触发了安全警报。这位艺术家后来发布了一部短片,他自己在画框里藏着碎纸机。亚历克斯·布兰奇克,苏富比欧洲当代艺术总监,他早些时候曾猜测,班克斯的自我粉碎特技本可以使作品“更有价值”,在一份声明中说:“班克斯在拍卖中没有毁掉一件艺术品,他创作了一件。”这位被认定为欧洲女收藏家、苏富比的长期委托人的买家评论道:“上周,当锤子掉下来,作品被粉碎时,我起初感到震惊,但渐渐地,我开始意识到我最终会有自己的艺术史。该工作已获班克西病虫害鉴定师颁发的新证书。关于这场恶作剧,人们意见不一,一些人称赞它是一种先锋式的自我毁灭行为,是对艺术市场的批评(班克斯本人引用了毕加索的格言,“毁灭的冲动也是一种创造性的冲动”)。其他人推测拍卖行可能从一开始就进行过特技表演,作品的价值显著增加。新闻/班克斯新闻苏富比拍卖艺术品市场伦敦
