Here is an interesting video on the ground-breaking auction (literally, with formaldehyde sculptures weighing in at over 10 tonnes), featuring a talk with the auctioneer of the sale Oliver Barker, who gives insight into the implications that this sale has on the contemporary art world as well as the current status of the market. Make sure you check out the post in the news section here for more info and images on the auction.
