Canvas Print Description

Quite unbeknownst to the passers-by who cascade up the stone steps of London’s streets, a parallel civilization goes about its business unawares. With them we seem to share a taste for refinement, hierarchization, and luxury. Decked out in dinner jackets beside a strip of fine red carpet that leads to the entrance to an up-market establishment, these individuals seem to enjoy a classed society as much as we do. There is only one noticeable difference — aside from the fact that their haute cuisine is made from that which we humans throw away — and that’s that they are rats. A pair of doormen in their tuxedos awaits the first guests into the rat-hole, in a piece that has had the power to make passers-by stop, stare, laugh, and reconsider the disproportionate wealth of the elite, of whom we are taught to aspire, emulate, and imitate. The subterranean rodents were the avatars of Banksy’s early career, acting as a stand-in for humans to mock, mimic, and decry the absurdities of our everyday life. “Bouncer Rats” is a scathing attack on the vapid desire for a hierarchy in the service industries, and was perhaps influenced by the grotesque tale from the Franco-Prussian war of 1871. With Paris under siege and supplies cut off, the high-end restaurants had to think of a solution. With many of its rich clientele utterly dependent on its service for their daily injection of refinement, many restaurants had the same ingenious idea. They raided the zoo and the sewers and served up the same familiar dishes with more unfamiliar cuts of meat — including elephant and rat — all to satisfy the insatiable appetites of those who demand luxury at any cost.
