United States Map Made from Wood Matches - Claire Fontaine


U.S.A. (burnt/unburnt) is a 2011 installation by Paris-based artist Claire Fontaine. Art of "Evidence of Bricks" at the 2011 Time-Based Art Festival.

Fontaine has made somewhat of a name for herself with her match installations and flaming geography, most recently completing a similar U.S.A. map at Queens Nails Gallery in San Francisco. Unlike the installation in Portland above, the Queens Nails artwork was actually set on fire, and while it may not have gone exactly as intended, the final post-flame artwork is impressive nonetheless. Photographs above for PICA by Dan Kvitka.










Update: Hyperallergic has the scoop in the latest US Map fire.
