I’m proud to say I don’t speak a word of French, but Suzanne does. Here’s her, uh, scoop on a “banana split”:
An Argentinian artist name Caesar Saëz who lived in Quebec applied to the Canada Arts Council and to the Quebec counterpart (le Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Québec) to create a 300-metre long flying banana made of bamboo and a type of synthetic paper (resembling Tyvex?) in order to denounce George Bush. The banana was to fly over the state of Texas.
Saëz left the country. And no one knows of the whereabouts of this work of art.
UPDATE: best comment so far.
