Banksy Reveals How Shredding Stunt Didn’t Go To Plan: ‘In Rehearsals It Worked Every Time’ - 班克斯揭示了如何粉碎特技并没有计划:每次排练都有效果。

The partial self-destruction of a Banksy painting at a Sotheby’s auction in London last week was the result of a misfire, the artist has claimed. Girl with Balloon (2006) appeared to drop from its faux-gilt frame, shredding over half of itself into ribbons, just after selling for GBP£860,000. But now the artist says that the entire artwork was supposed to shred.

A video titled ‘Shred the Love (the director’s cut)’ released by the enigmatic street artist shows a ‘test run’ with the artwork fully destroyed, accompanied by the caption, ‘In rehearsals, it worked every time.’ The film shows the rigged frame, with a secret shredder embedded inside, being constructed in Banksy’s studio. And it also includes footage from the evening of the auction, with the button pressed on a remote control, triggering the concealed shredder.

In an interview with The Art Newspaper, Sotheby’s staffers maintained that they had not been in on the stunt. Sotheby’s head of contemporary art in Europe Alex Branczik said that the sale of the work included stipulations that it be placed in the evening sale, and hung in the room. Branczik said that the auction house asked the artist’s studio Pest Control if the frame could be removed, but the request was refused. ‘Pest Control said very clearly: the frame is integral to the artwork, which it was, just not in the sort of way that we thought,’ Branczik said.

Sotheby’s said last week that the buyer had decided to keep the partially shredded artwork, now renamed Love is in the Bin (2018). The buyer, who is known only as a female European collector and longtime client of the auction house, said: ‘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 artwork has been granted a new certificate of authentication by the artist’s studio.

新闻/ 18 OCT 2018新闻/班克斯透露如何粉碎特技没有计划:“排练,它的每一次工作”18 OCT 2018在一个新的视频中,这位艺术家声称他的被操纵的框架应该用一个完整的礼节来破坏气球的女孩:艺术家Banksy Reveals How Shredding Stunt Didn’t Go To Plan: ‘In Rehearsals It Worked Every Time’ - 班克斯揭示了如何粉碎特技并没有计划:每次排练都有效果。礼貌:艺术家。
这位艺术家声称,上周在伦敦苏富比拍卖会上一次班克斯画的部分自我毁灭是一场失火的结果。带气球的女孩(2006)似乎从它的人造镀金框架上掉下来,把自己的一半切成丝带,然后卖了860000英镑。但现在这位艺术家说整个艺术品都应该被撕碎。
这名神秘的街头艺术家发布了一段名为“撕碎爱情(导演的剪辑)”的视频,该视频展示了“试运行”,作品被完全摧毁,并附有字幕:“在排练中,它每次都起作用。”影片展示了装有绳索的框架,里面嵌入了一个秘密的碎纸机,正在班克西的工作室建造。它还包括拍卖当晚的镜头,按下遥控器上的按钮,触发了隐藏的碎纸机。
苏富比的工作人员在接受《艺术报》采访时坚称,他们没有参与过这项预演。苏富比欧洲当代艺术主管亚历克斯·布兰奇克说,这幅作品的拍卖包括把它放在晚间拍卖中,挂在房间里的规定。布兰奇克说,拍卖行询问艺术家的工作室害虫控制是否可以去掉框架,但请求被拒绝。布兰奇克说,害虫防治部门说得很清楚:框架是艺术品不可或缺的一部分,它本来就是这样,只是没有我们想象的那种方式。苏富比上周表示,买方已决定保留部分粉碎的艺术品,现在改名为《爱在垃圾桶》(2018)。这位只以欧洲女性收藏家和拍卖行长期客户著称的买家说:“上周,当锤子掉下来,作品被切成碎片时,我起初感到震惊,但渐渐地,我开始意识到,我将获得自己的艺术史。”已被艺术家工作室颁发了新的认证证书。
