JONATHAN MONK | EXHIBIT MODEL THREE
Information on the activity
November 16, 2017 to January 27, 2018
For this retrospective exhibition, Monk has chosen to leave the gallery empty of material objects: the rooms are covered in monumental images presenting diverse exhibition views than span several years, in contexts that differ each time. They document many works—shown in close-up or wider views, from straight-on or oblique perspectives, in both colour and black & white—that provide an experience of the space that is unusual, to say the least: at once labyrinthine and dizzying.
About the artist:
The work of British artist Jonathan Monk stands out for its Conceptualist and humorous approach, referencing everything from canonical works of art history to actions and statements by famous artists to personal stories. His books, sculptures, paintings and photographs, often presented as installations, offer a desanctified vision of art, the artist and the creative process.
