101 Art Jokes, artist’s book, edition of 101, 10.5cm x 14cm, 2000

101 Art Jokes exists as a limited edition artist’s book and a performance in which names of artists and art movements are punned into cracker style jokes:

What do you get if you cross an artist with a kebab?
- Donner-tello

What do you get if you cross a painter with a boxer?
- Mohammed Dali

Why was the art dealer in debt?
- He didn't have any Monet

What did the artist say to the dentist?
- Matisse hurt

The jokes have also been translated into French and German, furthering the linguistic disruption. The onwership of a joke is always in flux which encourages a viral existence as the joke is retold and repeated.
