>£1M artwork self-destructs
班克斯名画拍卖后自毁
British street artist Banksy has stunned the art world with arguably his most audacious prank yet, self-destructing one of his best-known works moments after it fetched more than 1 million pounds at auction in London. "Girl with Balloon" had just sold at Sotheby's Friday for 1.04 million pounds when it unexpectedly passed through a shredder hidden in the frame. Banksy posted a video on Saturday on his Instagram page accompanied by a quote attributed to Pablo Picasso - "the urge to destroy is also a creative urge" - showing the stunt unfolding and how the artist pulled it off. "A few years ago I secretly built a shredder into a painting, in case it was ever put up for auction," read captions displayed over footage of a man crafting the device into a faux-gilt frame. The video later shows scenes from Sotheby's, where onlookers are left aghast as an alarm sounds and most of the image drops down through the frame and is left shredded. "It appears we just got Banksy-ed," said Alex Branczik, Sotheby's head of contemporary art for Europe, in a press release.
近日,英国街头艺术家班克斯实施了可能是他迄今最大胆的恶作剧,震惊整个艺术界。班克斯最知名的作品之一在伦敦以超百万英镑的价格拍卖后,他自行销毁了这幅作品。5日,《手持气球的女孩》在苏富比拍卖行以104万英镑售出,随后便出人意料地穿过画框中隐藏的碎纸机。班克斯6日在Instagram页面上发布视频,展示了恶作剧上演过程和他是如何成功恶作剧的,配文引用毕加索的一句话:"毁灭的欲望也是创造的欲望"。视频片段展示一名男子将碎纸机植入假的镀金画框,并配有字幕:"几年前我在一幅画作里秘密安装了一台碎纸机,以防有一天这幅画被拍卖"。视频随后展示了苏富比拍卖行的现场景象:警铃响起,画作有一大部分沿着画框下滑并被切碎,旁观者目瞪口呆。苏富比欧洲当代艺术部主管布莱希克在新闻稿中表示,我们似乎被班克斯摆了一道。

>Star fined for tax evasion
范冰冰偷逃税数额查清
Actress Fan Bingbing has been ordered to pay more than 800 million yuan in tax and fines, the country's tax authorities said. Although Fan was paid 30 million yuan for her role in the film "Unbreakable Spirit", she only declared 10 million yuan, while the other 20 million yuan was left out of her contract, thus evading 7.3 million yuan in taxes, according to an investigation conducted by the State Administration of Taxation and the Jiangsu Provincial Tax Service, Xinhua reported. Fan and her companies also owe 248 million yuan in taxes, the report said. Authorities have ordered Fan to pay the said taxes, an overdue fee of 33 million yuan and a fine of 596 million yuan based on relevant laws and regulations, Xinhua reported.
我国税务部门近日称,女演员范冰冰被责令补缴超过8亿元的税款以及罚款。据新华社报道,根据国家税务总局以及江苏省税务局的调查,范冰冰因参与电影《大轰炸》拍摄取得片酬3000万元,但只有1000万元申报纳税,其余2000万元以拆分合同手段偷逃税款合计730万元。除此之外,范冰冰及其企业少缴税款2.48亿元。根据相关法律法规,税务部门责令范冰冰补缴上述税款、3300万元滞纳金和5.96亿元罚款。
