McDonald’s pickle stuck to ceiling can be yours for $6,300, because art

August 1, 2022 |

In Australia, the Michael Lett Gallery has a unique “sculpture” for sale—a pickle from a McDonald’s burger artist Matthew Griffin stuck to the gallery’s ceiling. 

On sale for NZD 10,000 (USD$6,300), the work, entitled “Pickle,” is related to a broader gallery exhibition on “transience, distance, and time,” according to Design Boom. 

Griffin’s representative, Ryan Moore of the Fine Arts, Sydney, explained the work to the Guardian. He insisted the role of artists is to make things, not decide whether that something is art. He adds that he appreciates Griffin’s humor and the way “Pickle” questions “value generated between people.” 

The exhibit ended on Saturday, and it is unclear whether the piece was sold or how it was affixed to the ceiling in the first place.
