    Monica Ross entangled Walter Benjamin’s ideas in her work on various occasions. His echoes can be heard in the titles of various projects, State of Emergency (1992), passage (1993), Number 113 (1996), and his concepts can be perceived in various places, perhaps most graphically in valentine: the inventory (2002), a video record of a panoply of mass-reproduced items depicting the winged boys at the base of Raphaelʼs Sistine Madonna. Monica Ross dissented from the received wisdom about Benjamin that had coursed through the UK and US art world from the 1970s onwards.
