Georgian Performance Artist Ate a Banana Duct-taped to a Wall That Sold for $120,000

Georgian-born American artist David Datuna has eaten a banana used in an art work by Maurizio Cattelan, which had sold for $120,000.

The artwork, titled Comedian, was on display at Art Basel in Miami, one of the world's most high-profile art fairs.

The banana was swiftly replaced and no further action will be taken against Datuna - who said eating the banana was his "art performance".
