Our friends over at Babelgum have put together a nice video about the “Faile Bast Deluxx Fluxx Arcade” show that we covered last week at Lazarides. Bast and the Patricks were both interviewed about the creative process behind the show among other things. Also, there’s some nice footage of the immersive installation and artwork that transformed the gallery into a neon video arcade. Discuss this show here. Discuss Faile here. Discuss Bast here.

London art fans turned out this Thursday night to witness the most simultaneously fun and original show we’ve witnessed since, well, probably ever!

Read on for more details and pictures […]

We gave you some news on the shows a little while back, and we’ve been counting the days in the run up to this week. Greek Street – the old location of the gallery, and now commonly known as the Lazarides shop – will be hosting ‘”The Faile Bast Deluxx Fluxx Arcade”, where Faile are teaming up […]
Probably the show that AM is looking forward to most next month would be the Faile and Bast UK show at Lazarides opening February 12th. Both floors of the Greek Street location will be taken over by the Brooklyn duo and long-time collaborator Bast in what is promised to be an truly immersive installation with “80’s populist culture” as the stated source of inspiration (perhaps referenced in the title and logo for the show seen above). Also as a tease, proportedly there will be an […]
