In 1969 Mel Bochner became renown for his “Measurement rooms” for which architectural features of a room were measured and marked out directly onto the walls. Jonathan Monk is known for reproducing art works taken from art history, i.e. (re)making the same work, but in a different way. For “Measurements” (2021) Monk has marked in green printed lines the height and width of a postcard depicting the view of a “Measurement Room”. On the backside of the card he wrote with the help of a ruler, as a straight line support: ‘Written with a ruler for …’ giving this work a hand made touch. KvG
