Miguel Bonneville #7’ was a talk show simulacrum. The host interviewed an artist whose identity was not revealed; a totem, an animal-statue, devoid of life, its personality and identity remained unknown. Through the dissonance between personality (artist) and appearance (animal) the viewer’s attention focused on the speech - a discussion on philosophical, political and artistic topics. MB#7 was a portrait of Bonneville's obsessions as an artist, a caricature of himself.
