Claire Fontaine, U.S.A. (burnt/unburnt). green matches inserted into wall. part of “Evidence of Bricks” at Time-Based Art Festival at Portland Institute for Contemporary Art. (first 8 images: pre-flame)
Yes- time based, meaning, the burning of it was the best part!
Last image: post-flame version of installation in San Francisco gallery- in this run through, the burning sort of burned the gallery too. oops.
This installation of the USA made of matches was brought to our awareness by a friend. source: thisiscolossal.com.
More suggestions for art critical of America to post today is encouraged and gratefully accepted!
