In 2009 Banksy pulled off his most audacious coup to date. Having been invited to stage an exhibition at the slightly unnerving colonial junk shop known as the Bristol Museum and Gallery, the street artist could finally try his hand at making the leap from the street to the museum. Having already made the seamless move into exhibiting in contemporary galleries, Banksy’s large-scale show in his hometown and first city-canvas was always set to be an audacious exercise. The result was an array of diverted ready-mades and witty interventions that led the public to reach for their camera-phones. Like the original holdings of the Bristol Museum, Banksy’s sculptural objects were loosely curated icons of contemporary inertia. But it was his appropriations and interventions on classical paintings that truly raised the bar of this particular exhibition. In many of his painterly interventions the action occurs around, across, and beyond the frame. Art history has outstayed its welcome, and the themes, forms, and protagonists therein are surging towards liberation. In his “Flying Saucers” Banksy inserts a cluster of alien ships attacking a harmonious scene with puncturing green death-rays. The original work, a Romantic and dreamy harbor scene from the early-nineteenth century, depicted a colonial land buoyed by trade, expansion, and naval rule. These alien invaders, emerging from outside the frame, visit the past from our present, portraying our own fears of societal collapse and invasion. They say that the past is another country, but for Banksy, it is another planet
