Bonstardt is always exciting isn’t he isn’t he is a body of photographs that will be made in the gallery over the course of the exhibition, which will then be uploaded to the Internet for whatever use the viewer may have for them, free of cost. Their subject will be materials brought into the gallery, which will be available for inspection—in whatever form they are left in—after each session. None of the photographs will be Photoshopped. The outcomes of these photos are unknown.
“Bonstardt is always exciting isn’t he isn’t he” is a fragment of dialogue from the 1959 comedy recording The Critics by Ron Goodwin and Max Schreiner, performed by Peter Sellers and Irene Handl. This fragment has enlivened the artist’s experience of looking at and think about art, with the rhetorical question continuously popping up like a mind-worm.
