For an exhibition at Atle Gerhardsen in January of 1996, I proposed that I cut down the Christmas Tree for Trafalgar Square in London for 1995*.

After numerous letters and phone calls it was agreed that I help fell the spruce – following a short journey into the snow covered forest outside of Oslo I was handed a large axe and assigned a very tall tree. To document the outcome of this project I ventured down to London to capture the majesty of this public sculpture. On an extremely cold evening between Christmas and New Year, I stood on the steps of the National Gallery with a borrowed VHS camera (stuck on auto focus), no gloves and cold feet. The resulting video footage was not included in the final exhibition – eighteen years later, this edition, is still the only visible material associated this project.

* the giant Norwegian spruce has been an annual gift to London from the people of Norway since 1947, in recognition of Britain's support during the Second World War.

Hors série # 43 (january 2015)

a copy of Richard Hamilton Whitley Bay, 1965/2015 

Subscribers will receive 12 postcards / one per month. The actual postcards will be sent then from Whitley Bay. The edition consists of 40 signed and numbered sets.
One year subscription:
please contact gallery for price

 

 

Jonathan Monk's edition project consists of a series of 12 postcards, sent on a monthly basis over the 12 months of 2015. The first card is titled ‘A copy of Richard Hamilton Whitley Bay, 1965’. The following card then is titled ‘Another copy of Richard Hamilton Whitley Bay 1965’, and so on.

Every month, a new reproduction will be added. The first card (to be send by the end of January) shows a reproduction of the original card by Hamilton. The reproduction was made through an analogue photo technique- by use of a traditional medium format camera. The transparency that was made with this camera served as the basis for the first postcard.

Though, by the use of offset printing, each time the card is reproduced there is a 3 mm bleed (printer's boarder cropping) that will disappear. By repeating this process 12 times, each reproduction of the previous card will be more and more in close up.

The Surprise, found 7 inch single 45rpm record with specially printed label and white cover, edition 100, signed and numbered by Monk in pencil on the white outer cover. Each record is obviously unique within the edition, 2005

please contact gallery for price

 

 

The record is one of 100 different pop singles mostly from the 1980s - with some of the records by well known artists and others not. The re-labelling of the record by Monk means that the purchaser will not know what the original record is (unless they recognise it or do some research) - thus the 'surprise'.

Vibeke Tandberg, Rennid Gnikam, 2001

Tandberg is best known for her intense photography and 16mm films, which tease our perception of what is, or could be, real.

Carlos Amorales, Mambo 4' 44", 2001
Amorales has been addressing issues of identity by developing a multi-layered transcultural, inter-urban artistic game that re-activates one of the most important icons of urban popular culture in Mexico: the masked wrestler.
