Biography Jonathan Monk
British-born artist Jonathan Monk often appropriates ideas, works, and strategies from Conceptualist and Minimalist artists of the `60s and `70s. With photographs, sculpture, film, installation, and performance, his works recontextualize and rework these quotations, often infusing them with Monk`s personal history and working-class family background. These aspects add a humanizing and down-to-earth sensibility to the original works` utopian ideals and notions of artistic genius.
