Prank at the Natural History Museum. London, April 2004.

On April 7, Banksy enters Natural History Museum disguised as an employee. He carries a taxidermied rat in a glass-fronted box. The rat wears sunglasses and a complete graffiti kit. Apparently, he has sprayed “Our time will come” on the wall behind him. The installation comes with a printed explanation titled “Pest Control”. A few years later, Banky will set up his own certification office naming it “Pest Control Office”.
