Jonathan Monk's ongoing compilation of receipt drawings, that initially began in Rome, is an example of his spontaneous appropriationist gestures. Readymades of Jenny Holzer or Donald Judd resurface in the form of drawings on receipts which are later sold at the very same price indicated on the receipt. Just like that, Monk’s collectors end up buying him dinner, an organic outcome that equally romanticizes and mocks the intricately connected relationship between artist and his enabler.
These 10 unique receipt drawings by Jonathan Monk are created exclusively for Collecteurs Capsule Editions.
