MIMA City Lights with Faile

MIMA - Faile

For the exhibition ‘City Lights’ at the MIMA Museum in Brussels, the artistic duo Faile have covered the internal walls of the museum with their  stencils similarly like they have been doing on the New York streets for the past 15 years.

The lavatories adorn their signature narrative imagery  and characters.

Initially shown in the center of Times Square last autumn, a huge wooden sculptural installation with a spinning prayer wheel looks like a temple with consumerism slogans. The public eagerly interact with the installation and play with the wheel.

The adjacent walls feature two panels with juxtaposed imagery engraved in wood.

Wandering on the nearby streets of the museum, we were pleased to stumble upon a few stencils by the infamous artistic duo.
