In this vast iconography, the two artists cut out fragments, fiddle with them, transform them, combine them in countless different ways. An approach that recalls the art of collage: the art of bringing up unstable compositions, mashed up stories, semantic collisions. Faile is known for its striking aesthetic beaming with energy and immediately recognizable. Multitalented artists, the two work with the same ease across a wide range of media: painting on canvas, screen printing, stenciling, posters, sculpture, as well as monumental murals.
In this exhibition, Faile explores new graphic possibilities, introduces new themes, plays with cultural text borrowed from Disney and with elements taken from their personal lives, such as vinyls and books.¬ We find in these new works something of a return to the roots, with references to graffiti as well as to a previous stay in Paris: the poster of a Birdy Nam Nam concert at the Olympia, a forgotten bicycle, the emblematic white tiling on the Paris subway, etc.
