A NEW TAKE ON INVISIBLE ART
From invisible sculptures worth thousands of dollars to US$69 million JPGs, this year has seen its fair share of odd art achievements.
Yet, one museum was caught unawares after a commissioned project left it US$84,000 poorer and with nothing in return.
Danish artist Jens Haaning was given 534,000 kroner (US$84,000) in cash by the Kunsten Museum of Modern Art in Aalborg, Denmark to incorporate into two artworks.
He made off with the money and left both canvases blank, titling his work, 'Take the Money and Run'.
Byron has already tried his paw at Invisible Art – I do hope Wilson doesn't try to persuade him to attempt anything along these lines!
I can see it now…
UPDATE – the museum is now suing the artist for the return of its money!
