On Banksy's website, the description of the exhibition reads: "Are you the sort of person who enjoys going to art galleries, but wished they had more gravel in them?

"Then this temporary exhibition space is for you. Housing just two paintings but also featuring a bench, some carpet and complimentary refreshments. Opens today through Sunday 11am til midnight."
