Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day         Leslie Monk

Artful Pascale

 

We Monks do have a taste for  kitsch and for "found objects" and ephemera. We even have a set of pictures  on Flickr with that name, and when we stumbled upon the current Pascale Marthine Tayou show at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, in Hyde Park London, we both responded positively.

Confirming Monk philosophy, we dare speculate that Pascale has found and offered  beauty and joy and relevance in everyday colourful bulk issue fast food plastic straws, pipes and bags and bottles.

The theme of the show is artfully “suggested” and not hammered home; allowing the  meaning and the  connections between each motif to sink-in without fuss or pretension.

Those art lovers who lined up to see and pay to see Damien Hirst’s diamond skull in order to find the meaning of life, should consider staying away.

Pascale’s Visitors will not be required to pay for that privilege and will not fail to register his polemic before they find the exit.

Joy indulged, message delivered.

Pascale describes his installation as "deceitful";

I would add, knowingly so.

A pleasure to be had...... the politics of ....

OIL

STRAW

CHOCOLATE

WATER

And the means by which it is distributed.
