In homage to Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader, Jonathan Monk and Douglas Gordon teamed up to create Tea for Two (2011), writing out the titular phrase in bright yellow neon. The work references Ader’s Untitled (Teaparty) (1972), a series of six photographs showing Ader taking his afternoon tea beneath a box propped up by a stick. In a pointed visual conclusion, the last photograph in Ader’s series shows only the fallen box, the artist having been trapped like a mouse.
