KPM + FAILE
SCARED YOUNG MINDS
When FAILE artists Patrick Miller and Patrick McNeil met with KPM Berlin for the first time in 2017, it was still completely open what a joint project could look like, but quickly it became clear that the joint object was to be a porcelain version of an iconic character for the New Yorkers: The dreamy girl, created for the first time in porcelain, leaning against a tree trunk, belongs to a motif known in the 20-year success story of FAILES and the international art scene.
The special feature of the innovative cooperation between the two partners is the playful combination of New Pop Art Millers and McNeils with traditional craftsmanship and the valuable material of the Berlin luxury manufactory. Together with FAILE, the historic KPM porcelain was transformed into an unexpected form and artistically revived. The result is an object created to perfection, which triggers a special desire among art lovers, porcelain lovers and collectors.
The object will be available in a strictly limited, individually designed edition of 24 + 5 individual Artist Proof copies and a matching box designed by the artists.
