ABOUT THE ART
There seems to be a New Not Banksy Realisation in the Land of the Rising Sun...A mysterious package was left in the eaves of the Liberty lifestyle store in Miyazaki, Japan containing 250 screen prints by the New Not Banksy Realisation with 200 available to sell to "The West".
A new dawn is NOT upon us!
A new NOT BANKSY has appeared in the rising sun!
This is the new true story of the New NOT BANKSY Realisation.
In the shadow of the Peace Tower of Miyazaki a rogue non-collective of Neo-No-Nothingist NOT-Art InActivists has arisen to claim that Banksy is NOT from Bristol, that NOT BANKSY is NOT from Scunthorpe, that STOT21stCplanB do NOT exist, and that all three are in fact the invention of themselves: a Japanese Radical-NOT NOT-Art sect intent on destabilising the dominance of Euro-American Culture and exposing the Western orientated Art World as the calamitous force for evil it truly is. This rogue non-collective sect of Neo-No-Nothingist Radical-NOT NOT-Art InActivists is known as Scorpion Thunderbolt of the 21st Century Plans C, D and E (STOT21stCplansCD&E).
With the publication of a NOT BANKSY screen print edition to be made and sold in Japan for the Japanese people, this normally inactive and secretive non-collective have made the following explanatory statement about their activities.
“We STOT21stCplansCD&E, being a non-collective sect of Neo-No-Nothingist Radical-NOT NOT-Art InActivists, are the true New NOT BANKSY Realisation.
Our extreme form of non-collectivism was born of the unawareness (and a flaccid concrete irreality) in Japan that innovations in suppression could not exist without worthless inaction undertaken through deviant strategic disturbances. Whereas Nothingism and Neo-Nothingism liberated NOT-art in a chained discursive cage, it never liberated the Non-artwork as a material Non-artifact or the Anartist as anti-creator. Keeping the decentrality of “Non-collectivism and Neo-No-Nothingism” in mind, we capture and release two essential traits of Neo-No-Nothingism in Japan: the “don’t do it yourself” spirit and the “anti-social engagement” in the unawareness of a broader public insignificance. Utilising these ever-negating pulses of disenchantment we publish this print as final proof of our disbelief in all Western (and non-Western) art. We tear it all down in our minds and rebuild nothing.
We are Fake, You are Fake, Banksy is Fake, NOT BANKSY is Fake, This is Fake!
Long live NOTHING NOT!!”
STOT21stCplansCD&E, Miyazaki, November 2020
This statement was found with a pile of 250 prints on the doorstep of the Liberty lifestyle shop and cafe in Miyazaki, with additional instructions to sell the first 50 copies in Japan and export the remaining 200 to be sold to ‘the West’ through their longstanding co-conspirators, the L-13 Light Industrial Workshop.
NOT BY BANKSY BY THE NEW NOT BANKSY REALISATION
Just to be clear, all artworks by the New NOT BANKSY Realisation and associated activities by STOT21stCplansCD&E are NOT by BANKSY and the real BANKSY has nothing to do with any of the New NOT BANKSY Realisation non-collective sects, NOT-Art and NON-artifacts.
