The elusive partisans of contemporary art made another risky attempt. Under the guise of paintings by street artist, he exhibited at the Central square of Venice Venice installation in oil, and left unexposed from-под nose of the police

to Open a photo installation by Banksy Venice in oil.

Venice in oil — ambiguous phrase, a play on words. This "Venice oil" (meaning picture) and "Venice in oil" (in the sense of the environmental damage resulting from navigation in General and cruise ships in particular). The puzzle consists of nine paintings, of different sizes, forms the canvas on which Venice moored multi-decked ship. Many of them, it turns out, still discharged in the seas and oceans. But I suppose that the interpretation can be broader than just the pollution of marine waters. In the installation there is clearly also a metaphor of the collision of the special coziness of the historical way with a cheeky mass tourism. The European habitat culture could hardly contain the onslaught of a growing human flows. And when we are talking about big money, who-то ready to sacrifice the stability of the local ecosystems.

the Key points of the action of Venice in oil published in the video on the official channel of Banksy on Instagram. The story ends how the artist (or actor with a wrapped face —), local police and demands to clear the area. After some wrangling, the artist gathers his art-поклажу and removed. Later on Instagram Banksy quipped: "Organized his counter at the Venice Biennale. Despite the fact that it is the largest and most prestigious event in the art world, I for some-то reasons never invited".
