Man Steps in Peanut Butter Artwork in a Gallery

A Dutch museum goer managed to accidentally step in an art installation made entirely of peanut butter. The carpet of smooth peanut butter –  known as the Peanut Butter Platform – has suffered mishaps in the past but museum bosses refuse to erect a rope around it, claiming this would spoil its beauty.

The carpet measures 12m x 4m and made from 1,100 litres of Peanut Butter. The unfortunate visitor has been asked to pay for the damage, which will hopefully only cost a couple of tubs of peanut butter and the time of someone to repair it. The museum has not officially announced how much was paid for the installation, but the sum allegedly involves more than 100,000 Euros.

The Peanut Butter Carpet  by artist Wim T. Schippers can be seen at the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in the Netherlands but if you’re allergic to peanuts, try not to accidentally fall in it.

It’s certainly not art by any stretch of the imagination. In fact it is a sad commentary on the decline of true art. Disgraceful and embarrassing.
