Good To Know: Unframed, professionally packed, stored flat in humidity controlled art storage facility, refer additional information to download Condition Report; Arty-Fact: Early in their collaboration, FAILE explored how a minimalistic image can be powerful enough to trigger a collective memory – such as the John F. Kennedy assassination or the attack of the World Trade Center in 2001. The duo considered their affinity with the Challenger Space Shuttle exploding after take-off in 1986. Both were in grade school and pulled out of class to watch the launch live on television. They witnessed first hand the tragedy that unfolded. Based on this conversation, FAILE conceived a simple graphic of a falling space shuttle which had been set aflame, and placed the image around the streets of New York together with the symbols “1986” and “51-L.” FAILE has often used the image of the Challenger Space Shuttle in their work and sign their pieces with ‘1986’ instead of their names.
