5 Posters by Jenny Monick
Monick’s 5 Posters comprises five editioned doubled-sided prints. Beginning with photocopied construction paper, some torn and faded with time, the machine process adds its own elements—striations, shadows, and off-handed registration. Further, following the offset printing, the paper was then folded, adding a physical linear element to the body of the print. Each step along the way underscores the influence of uncontrolled forces driving the work. Monick harnesses imperfections and easy technology in her material and process to revelatory effect. Bound with string, 5 Posters is an edition of 250.
