“Because life isn’t only intellectual and it isn’t exclusively human.”



Claire Fontaine is a collective artist founded in 2004. Borrowing her name from the popular French brand of school exercise books, Claire Fontaine appropriates the notion of ready-made through the use of neon, sculpture, painting, text and video. Her work comments on global events, politics and society through their “détournement” of powerful symbols and status objects, and criticizes the political impotence and the crisis of singularity that seem to define contemporary life today.
