FAILE “Wishing On You” At The Flashy Crossroads of NYC

FAILE “Wishing On You” At The Flashy Crossroads of NYC

FAILE Takes Times Square with Giant Prayer Wheel. Come Give it a Spin!

A folk-art pagoda sitting quietly in the basin of a valley richocheting with electronic propaganda and consumption worship, the newest public piece by Brooklyn’s street art duo FAILE has a few mysteries to reveal to the river of tourists flowing around it and through it. You may need a place to pray in this land of fake Muppets, Three Card Monte and thong-strung patriotic painted ladies. “Wishing On You” draws on European, Asian, and American forms and culture, a tribute to traditions, myths, and big screen adventure.

Covered with images evocative of Times Square’s racier past and American dreams flooded in commercial fonts and appetizing invitation, this new rotating piece may remind you of their other prayer wheels and whet your appetite for their current enormous and interactive solo show at The Brooklyn Museum till October 4th. Try to rotate this hunk of pop and pulp and you’ll need a strong woman to help, but when you do, something glittering will surely happen. Promise.

A marathon of preparation, here you can see some behind-the-scenes production shots leading up to the 12+ hour installation that began at 8 Sunday night and continued through the morning in time for the Faile Unveil at 11 am in 90 degree weather yesterday.

Don’t tarry if you want to see this carved wood reminder of snake oil salesmen, saucy iniquity, and occasional divinity at NYC’s crossroads. “Wishing on You” is a limited run till September 1.

Join BSA In Conversation with Faile at Brooklyn Museum on September 24th.

Images of The Week: 06.23.13

Here’s our weekly interview of the street, this week featuring Creepy, Chris RWK, David Smith, Enzo & Nio, How & Nosm, JR, Pennygaff, Shai Dahan, This is Awkward, Veng RWK, and Werds.

Pennygaff did this tribute as gravestone on the last remaining chunk of Monster Island, a very lively and engaging artists performance space/ gallery / hangout in Williamsburg, Brooklyn –  now demolished to make way for glass and steel highrises. Median rental cost of a 1 bedroom apartment in Williamsburg is $3,150, compared to about $1,500 10 years ago. That’s progress. (photo © Jaime Rojo)

David Smith hit up Williamsburg and Greenpoint with about 100 of these animals this week. (photo © Jaime Rojo)
