The No Family Life solo exhibit may have been a fire hazard, but that didn't stop Paris-based artist Claire Fontaine nor the Air de Paris gallery from holding it. Comprised of large-scale matchstick artworks that may even put Shaikh Salimbhai's intricate sculptures to shame, the show focuses on making political and societal statements.
For instance, the No Family Life solo exhibit featured a matchstick art piece that formed a map of France. According to the artist, "The work evokes the fragile political balance in the country and constitutes a danger in its unburnt state because anyone could light the fire," and that is exactly what she does. Another installation spelled out the word 'consumption' using a mind-boggling 100,000 matchsticks.
