The whereabouts of the money remains a mystery and the Kunsten Museum of Modern Art is considering further action to ensure the cash is returned.
Jens Haaning, the artist in question, insists what he delivered is art, however - calling the empty canvases 'Take the Money and Run'.
This is brilliant.
And I'm no expert, but I don't think the director has much of case since art is so subjective. If he set certain perameters for the art piece he might have a case but otherwise it's whatever the artist envisions
