Banksy: Di-Faced Tenners (Ten Pound Notes).

Lot 0148
Banksy (British b. 1974)Attributed: Two Di-Faced Tenners (Ten Pound Notes) from Dismaland Bemusement Park (2015). These 2 notes have all the hallmarks: Diana's face replacing the Queen's; 'Banksy of England' instead of 'Bank of England'; the POW initials as well as DI-FACED CURRENCY information on the bottom left side; the serial number CA70 364470 and the words 'trust no one' on the reverse side. A Certificate of Authenticity and ticket receipts from Dismaland accompany these notes.

Banksy's Di-Faced Tenner (a play on the word defaced) is especially explicit in exploring the intersection between art and money.

Prepared in secret the pop-up exhibition was a sinister twist on Disneyland that opened during the weekend of 21 August 2015 and closed permanently on September 27, 2015 36 days later.
