Claire Fontaine, "Paris (burnt/unburnt)," 2011
PICA is warming up for TBA:11 with a toasty teaser by Parisian visual arts duo Claire Fontaine
. ON SIGHT Salon
features a discussion and sneak peak of their in-progress festival installation, which is an embedded matchstick map of the United States. The sucker may or may not be torched by Festival day, so don't miss this talk like the work, it should prove combustible.
"After lifting her name from a popular brand of school notebooks, Claire Fontaine declared herself a 'readymade artist' and began to elaborate a version of neo-conceptual art that often looks like other people's work. Her practice can be described as an ongoing interrogation of the political impotence and the crisis of singularity that seem to define contemporary art today."
