Tel Aviv: Dvir Gallery, 2010
15 x 21cm, 2pp printed announcement card with an image of a woman cycling with two bikes (one being empty) and with a striped scarf. The "ghost rider" of the title presumably indicating the empty seat. But the references of duality (two bikes) and the striped scarf are Boetti and Buren. Text in reverse in Hebrew. VG+.

n.p.: n.p., n.d.
38 x 34cm, black silkscreen on cream cotton plus handles. The text is from an email from "Axel" seemingly about a technical issue in printing but on reading it is hard to follow and seems wrong. On one side of the bag is it printed in reverse (mirrored) white on black and on the other the text while the right way round is heavily broken up. Both sides are very difficult to read.. Slightly faded but else VG+. This example is signed by Monk in black felt tipped pen on the reversed side. Edition size not known.

Paris: Alice Traval & FLorence Loewy, 2010
120 x 150cm, white silkscreen on green cotton. The text reads

A TIME
&
A PLAVE
AT SOME POINT IN THE FUTURE

The work is banner and flag at the same time although the instruction is to pin the work to the wall rather than fly it on a pole. A reference to the work of conceptual artist Lawrence Weiner, the banner's text is also a "meeting" text - suggesting a generalised description of a place and time.
This is one of 40 examples alongside 10 artist's proofs - each signed and numbered on a separate paper certificate. In original 23 x 36 x 4cm two part heavy cardboard box with tipped on printed label. VG+.
