Overview

Claire Fontaine is the alter ego of Fulvia Carnevale and James Thornhill, who teamed up in 2004. Borrowing their name from the famous brand of school notebooks, Claire Fontaine declared themselves a "readymade artist" and developed a new form of neo-conceptual art. Unlike conceptual artists of the XX century (picture generation), the artists manipulate the form of an object, completely replacing or expropriating its inherent meaning. Developing the situationist method of détournement, Claire Fontaine imitates both iconic artworks of the XX century and everyday objects.

 

The artist works with a wide range of problems of capitalist society: the problem of social alienation (‘Capitalism Kills’), unequal distribution of resources (Someone Is Getting Rich, 2012), economic crises, and their consequences (Suicide Stack, 2010). In addition, Claire Fontaine criticizes art institutions. For instance, ‘This Neon Sign Was Made by… for Remuneration of…’ (2009, 2010, 2009–2014) raises the problem of authorship. Claire Fontaine incorporated the name of the object producer and the prime cost into the neon inscription. One of the neons was specifically produced for their solo exhibition ‘Fighting against gravity’ in OVCHARENKO (until 2018 — Regina). Another work, ‘Sculpture Suspendue,’ features artificial plants in hanging pots that rotate with the help of a disco-ball motor. The object is the replica of a diner's decor in Miami, where Claire Fontaine stayed for the Art Basel Fair. Blown off by air conditioning, the flowers resembled a globe's image, spurred by countless biennials and fairs.
