Description

Numbered and signed copy 

With Diecimila, Jonathan Monk adopts a radical, conceptual stance by appropriating Chris Burden’s eponymous work of 1977, a double-sided facsimile of an Italian 10,000 lira banknote. Imperiling the notion of the ownership of the work, Monk even duplicates his predecessor’s signature. The mimetic operation is double, as Monk creates the facsimile of a facsimile.
