Artist Brad Downey’s, whose project often involve hacking the city, has stirred up many interesting questions about society, time and ephemerality with his latest art project that excavates a classic 2003 Banksy mural titled, “Every Picture Tells a Lie,” for a gallery show in Berlin. What will happen to the work, which restorers uncovered by scraping away more than a dozen layers of paint, no one knows yet. According to the Daily Mail, the gallery says “it may be painted over again or sold to an interested collector.”
According to ArtLyst:
Brad lists the materials as “restored/extracted ‘Banksy’ Installation (originally painted in 2003 for the exhibition Backjumps- Volume:1), red paint,” the piece is part of a show curated by Adrian Nabi called Do Not Think! Adrian Nabi also recently curated the Backjumps show.
