Arseniy ZhilyaevM.I.R.: Polite Guests from the FutureAn acronym for Museum of Russian History, the Russian word ‘mir’ means both ‘world’ and ‘peace’ and also refers to the legendary MIR space station. In his exhibition at Kadist, Moscow-based Zhilyaev critiques the current political climate of Russia through the lens of an imagined future. Implementing the museum as a tool, Zhilyaev bases his approach on the “negative display” exhibitions of A.

“America (Burnt/Unburnt)” by Claire Fontaine

via cjwho:

U.S.A. (burnt/unburnt) is a 2011 installation by Paris-based artist Claire Fontaine constructed from thousands of green matches that were inserted into a wall at the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art as part art of “Evidence of Bricks” at the 2011 Time-Based Art Festival. Fontaine has made somewhat of a name for herself with her match installations and flaming geography, most recently completing a similar U.S.A. map at Queens Nails Gallery in San Francisco.
