People who have saved this event:


Claire Fontaine is the name of a collective feminist artist, lifted from a popular brand of French stationary. Working in neon, video, sculpture and text, Fontaine’s work often interrogates through her art the impotence of people in the face of social and political issues.


For We The People Are The Work Fontaine has produced a series of new works that tackle the questions of morality, agency and freedom of speech through illuminated text in the space. Lifting quotes from Donald Trump and the Brexit debate, she creates a visual and conceptual polyphony where the viewer is invited to take a position.
