French artist Claire Fontaine has created some unusual art pieces throughout her time as an artist. With her uncanny sight and talent, Fontaine has been traveling with a few art pieces to display at numerous gallery installations and exciting areas of the globe.
Her “America (Burnt/Unburnt) work has been showcased in areas like Portland, where she perfectly executed the pre-burn portion of set up and the burn portion looks to have been successful. Green-tipped matches set the precedence for a giant map of the good ‘old U. S. of A. to later be lit on fire and a simple blaze to take all of the beautiful greenery out of each and every part of the country.
It just so happens that during a similar install in San Francisco, the ‘Queens Nails’ art studio was left with a hefty bill when everything went up into flames– literally. Learn about the match-lighting gone awry, here.
