London: Fragments of Faile

Fragments of Faile

Brooklyn based duo of Patrick’s return to London to present their new show at Lazarides Rathbone called “Fragments of Faile“.

The exhibition is split in two series: the first is their trademark juxtaposition of themes and colour blocks, and the second is a brand new direction featuring painting of women with abstract fabric patterns.

The Faile & Bäst Deluxx Fluxx Arcade in NYC

After the London success of the explosive and creative Deluxx Fluxx video arcade installation (covered here )  Brooklyn-based duo Faile and collaborator Bast take over a disused storefront on the Lower East Side.

 Faile & Bast's Deluxx Fluxx

Originally conceived as a one-off project in London, Deluxx Fluxx allowed Faile and Bast to indulge nostalgia for the classic video arcade while exploring the tactile possibilities of the wooden cabinet as sculptural medium.

Deluxx Fluxx aims to make art less sterile, more fun, and accessible to a broad audience. This sensibility harkens back to the golden age of arcade games; a time when the Lower East Side itself was still a redoubt for punk rock and graffiti culture.  Deluxx Fluxx is entirely interactive, and invites viewers to play a round of psychedelic foosball and take part in the art itself. It is the artists’ intention that viewers will forget they are looking at art, and be captivated by the carnivalesque. The video arcade may be a lost form, but in Faile and Bast’s re-imagining, it gets a temporary and much needed revival.

In its New York incarnation, a new set of the retrofitted machines run games by Adapted based on Faile and Bast’s omnivorous visual language, with sounds produced by Seth Jabour of the noted band Les Savy Fav.
