British artist Jonathan Monk draws upon what is already available, from family photographs to the legacy of conceptual art, combining homage with humour and personal context with art history. Among his works for Present Tense 23 is an engaging reworking of a 1981 piece by Lawrence Weiner in the AGO’s collection.
