Two colour photographs (both 21 x 29.7cm)) and two 35mm colour slides. Signed certificate with instructions for display: "The two images should not be displayed within the same space. The work can be made in a number of different ways, either both photographs can be show, both slides projected (the projected dimensions are variable) or one photograph and one projection.
The owner of the work must decide how the piece is to be installed. For every installation a different rule can be followed.
Duplicate slides should not be made. Fading only alters the look of the piece, but not it's intention."
The work shows two similar but slightly different images of a lorry being refuelled in a Mexican petrol station. In the background are stripes on a wall which look somewhat like a Daniel Buren stripes work (hence the title "Photo Souvenir - which is a title Buren uses for his photo=documentations of works).
An unique work by Monk only ever exhibited in the "Secret Exhibition" show in Edinburgh in 2013 curated by Paul Robertson. VG+.
