Recycled Monogold

Gold leaf on printed paper

21 x 28 cms


A page torn from an Yves Klein catalogue originally showing Klein’s 'Untitled Monogold’, altered by the Artist by adding a recycling symbol in gold leaf.

This work, like ‘Untitled Blue Flag’ (1997) and ’24 Carat GT’ (1997), also started with a page ripped out of an Yves Klein catalogue. This time the title of the original artwork ‘Untitled Monogold’ (1967) morphed into ‘Recycled Monogold’ (1997) with the addition of a recycling symbol in gold leaf. The circular universe. Nothing is new under the sun.
