    About The Work

    This work is part of a series commissioned by GDM called DADA fétiche, inspired by a 1921 project by Marcel Duchamp. In a letter to his fellow Dada icon Tristan Tzara, Duchamp proposed that they create necklaces or bracelets with the letters D-A-D-A stamped in metal, transforming them into a talisman that would protect the wearer against life's problems. GDM asked multiple artists to respond to Duchamp's proposition, and realize a "DADA Fétiche" of their own. In Monk's version, the necklace becomes paradoxically unwearable, affixed to a backing with a hazy outline of spraypaint echoing the letters.
