Group founded in Paris in 2004
Representing a socio-culturally committed movement in contemporary art, Claire Fontaine is a group formed in 2004 by two artists living in Paris: James Thornill et Fulvia Carnevale. After taking the name from a popular brand of school notebooks as well as from Duchamp’s urinal that he entitled “Fontaine”, Claire Fontaine declared itself a “ready-made artist”. Often provocative but also poetic, Claire Fontaine’s work questions the world and the art world in particular.
The group creates sculptures, paintings, writings, videos and installations.
