Banksy Unveils Director's Cut of His Self-Shredding Picture

  • Banksy Girl WIth Balloon

The clip, titled "Shred The Love", purportedly shows Banksy, originally from Bristol in southwest England, testing out the secret shredding mechanism that he'd inserted into the frame prior to the sale.

Earlier this month, "Girl With Balloon" sold for a whopping $1.4 million during a record-breaking auction at Sotheby's in London.

However, the painting was only partially shredded by its frame, which contained a hidden device.

After the winning bid, the video shows someone pressing a remote control, which started the shredding.

Banksy has revealed that his partial shredding of an artwork during a Sotheby's auction did not go to plan and that the painting was instead meant to be completely destroyed.

An unnamed collector bought the piece which, including a buyer's premium, cost £1m.

The anonymous artist shared a video on his website on Tuesday, which captured the prank unfold at Sotheby's in London on 5 October.

Part of the piece remained within the frame and was not destroyed. Staff then rushed the artwork out of the room with the picture half-shredded.

The video's only major revelation comes at the end: The words "In rehearsals it worked every time..." fill the screen, followed by footage of a dummy Girl With Balloon sailing through the shredder in full, resulting in an entirely damaged work.

Banksy previously claimed that preparations for the stunt were carried out "a few years ago" in case it was ever put up for auction. The spectacular stunt left many in the art world wondering if such a creative art heist could increase the masterpiece's value and if the reputable auction house was behind the performance to generate even more interest in Banksy.

Speaking to The Art Newspaper, Branczik explained: "Pest Control [Banksy's authentication board] said very clearly: the frame is integral to the art work".
