The Work of Jennifer Brial
I really like these pin and map works by Paris-based artist Jennifer Brial. She creates objects based on map modifications. She plays with materials to create a new form and new sense.
Le Monde Épinglé
Globe, steel pins with glass head 25 x 30 cm, 2010
Pins on maps is the traditionally mark of visited cities. She has randomly pinned up all over the globe for making a cruelly concrete object of an obsessional traveler.
You Are Here
Paper, steel pins with glass head 51 x 87 cm, 2010
This work, on the border with graphic design, plays with relief, typography and scale. You are everywhere.
Cardboard, steel pins with glass head 50 x 60 cm, 2011 Quoting Buckminster Fuller's world projection, she approach here map disappearance.
Cardboard, steel pins 63,5 x 83,5 cm, 2009
Jennifer has cutted and pinned territories who she's visited in the chronological order. This stupid collection ask questions about our relation with tourism and trophy.
Paper, steel pins, 2011.
