  • Banksy's shredded art stunt is a beautiful meme now

Sotheby's says the winning bidder for a Banksy painting that self-destructed during an auction last week has made a decision to go through with the purchase.

Banksy later posted a video of the moment of the painting's destruction to Instagram captioned, "Going, going gone ..."

The mysterious artist has since authenticated the painting's scraps and renamed it Love Is In The Bin.

Sotheby's said after the famous incident that it was "in discussion about next steps" with the winning bidder about what to do.

The auction house said Thursday that Banksy's authentication body, Pest Control, re-authenticated the 2006 graffiti-style artwork, "Girl With Balloon".

The artwork selfdestructed moments after being sold at auction for ₤1.04 million ($A1.96 million), in a prank apparently orchestrated by the elusive street artist.

Nouveau scandale sanitaire — Cabines de bronzage
Le ministère de la Santé, contacté par l'AFP , n'a pas encore défini sa décision après l'avis transmis il y a " quelques jours ". Dans une note publiée ce mercredi , l'instance recommande l'arrêt total de l'activité liée au bronzage artificiel.

Girl with Balloon, which depicts a small child reaching up toward a heart-shaped red balloon, was originally stenciled on a wall in east London and has been endlessly reproduced, becoming one of Banksy's best-known images.

"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 buyer, a long-standing client of Sotheby's, said in the release.

It still remains unclear how the shredder was activated.

The buyer, a female European collector whose identity hasn't been disclosed by Sotheby's, is proceeding with the purchase at the hammer price achieved during the company's contemporary art evening sale in London Oct. 5.

Love is in the Bin will be put on display to the public at Sotheby's New Bond Street galleries over the weekend.
