Banana Bandit Goes Ape…

Security ‘slip up’ at high profile art fair.

A £90,000 banana, duct taped to a wall in one of the world’s most high profile contemporary art fairs, has been stolen – and replaced with a pack of Chewits!

The banana installation, by Maurizio Cattelan, was removed from the wall and eaten, before being replaced by the stick of chewy sweets.

The culprit left scratches on the wall and claw marks in the banana skin; a sure sign of their identity…
