The performance artist who ate the infamous $120,000 banana duct-taped to the wall at Art Basel Miami is opening an interactive food show in New York City.

The show will open Thursday and feature “33 items you can find in your corner bodega,” according to a report published by Page Six.

People attending the show will be encouraged to “snatch and eat the ‘artwork'” off the wall much like David Datuna did to the banana back in December, a source told the outlet. The show, which will be hosted at the NYC gallery Ca’d’ Oro, will include items “such as M&Ms and Diet Coke.” (RELATED: Banana That Sold For $120,000 Eaten As ‘Art Performance’)

Collectors will be able to buy a certificate authenticating the items as “art” for $450, the source added.

This is the best thing I have ever heard of. I would love to go to an art show that’s interactive like this. So many art shows are stuffy and you’re not allowed to touch anything. There’s something different and more intriguing about art that you can interact with.

I think it brings people who don’t really understand art into the scene as well. Give people an activity to do and they’ll enjoy it more.
