Jonathan Monk in Artist on Collecting

Dvir Gallery is happy to share that Jonathan Monk is featured in the video series Artist on Collecting by Quartz Studio. The episode with Monk is available here. “The concept behind “Artist on Collecting” started with evidence that collecting is at the foundation of visual investigation, considered as a process of selection, care and the creation of relationships between objects, with their generative ability to produce ideas. The project aims to document different experiences, with the hope of reaching a greater understanding of the themes of collecting by artists and contemporary art. The videos convey the perspectives of Italian and international artists in their studios.”

Laurence Weiner in the new issue of Artforum

“FEATURING HIS SELF MADE SAILOR’S HAT until his last days, Lawrence Weiner never tired of reminding us that WE ARE SHIPS AT SEA NOT DUCKS ON A POND, apparently sharing Otto Neurath’s moral imperative. The necessity of citing Weiner verbatim in the very first sentence (and in nearly every paragraph) of this homage already signals the extent to which his work contested—if not disqualified—the legitimacy of critical and historical ekphrasis. Every single one of his statements aimed at dismantling linguistic conventions (of plasticity, of poetry, of metaphor, of metaphysical thinking) and disputed the conciliatory potential of cultural practices […].” Benjamin H. D. Buchloh on Lawrence Weiner Article is available here.
