AA Bronson’s Garden of Earthly Delights featuring AA Bronson with Chrysanne Stathacos, Mark Jan Krayenhoff van de Leur, Keith Boadwee, Adrian Hermanides, Matthias Herrmann, Gareth Long, Ebe Oke, JX Williams.

 

AA Bronson’s Garden of Earthly Delights transforms the Main Hall of the Salzburger Kunstverein into an activated, queer tableaux of moving and still parts, presenting an arena of engagement, transgression and reflection. The exhibition is, in one regard, a queer adaptation of Hieronymus Bosch’s triptych of the same name (circa 1500), here aesthetically married with Japan’s famous Zen garden of Ryoan-ji (1499). Both the painted garden and the rock garden offer us a vision of the spiritual as a constructed universe. AA Bronson asks us to reconsider them in this exhibition, each alike a universe held within dramatized limits, like a gay bar or a drag club.

 

AA Bronson & Keith Boadwee. PLAID
The second component of the exhibition takes place in the Kabinett: AA Bronson and Keith Boadwee have collaborated on an homage to the anus. They present a painting series titled PLAID, performative works created by squirting paint from their sphincters. The paintings are simultaneously a nod to and simulacrum of classic modernist serial painting and Actionism both; they posit the body, and especially—in Freudian terms—the anus, as the fount of creation. AA Bronson says: “The asshole IS the revolution.”
