Banksy says his shredding spree failed: "In the rehearsals it worked every time"



LONDON – When the $ 1.4 million work of art passed through a document shredder hidden in its frame, gasps were heard in the auction room. About half way through, the shredding stopped suddenly, and the upper part of "Girl With Balloon" seemed to have been saved.

But this pardon, according to Banksy, the street artist who created the work – and who organized the prank destroy it – was not planned. In a clip posted on YouTube on Wednesday, Banksy suggested that he meant that the painting would be completely destroyed at the auction in London on October 5, but that the plan was thwarted when the shredder unexpectedly stared.

Clip, called "Shred The Love," depicts a man building the frame, his face hooded by a hoodie. "The samples worked out every time," it says in a caption. The video then shows a copy of "Girl With Balloon", which is completely shredded when it has slipped out of the frame.

The copy in the clip seems to have been printed on paper, while the "Girl With Balloon" was sold at auction, painted on canvas, a harder material, which may explain why the shredder failed. Joanna Brooks, the director of JBPR, who answered media inquiries on behalf of Banksy, did not respond to telephone calls or an email asking whether the samples were actually made on paper copies.
