According to the BBC, Banksy described the exhibition as a “family theme park unsuitable for children”.

The artist added that many of the works require “audience participation”.

“A dead princess is only complete when surrounded by gawping crowds with their cameras out or the opportunity to photograph yourself pulling an amazed expression when a killer whale leaps from a toilet.”
