Brakay for Fame Festival 2011

Juxtapoz // Friday, 09 Sep 2011

As we prepare our own trip to Grottaglie, Italy for Fame Festival later this month, we are keeping up with the work being presented in the Southern Italian city. Now up is duo Brakay (Brad Downey and A Kay), who have gone around Grottaglie and left little treasures and conceptual pieces, using the narrow streets to their advantage.

Angelo from Fame writes, "i’d say that to me, these pieces and actions reflect pretty faithfully the entire festival atmosphere and attitude. A bunch of kids playing freely with the context, for fun, improvising totally unnecessary things that will eventually look good or even have a meaning or a message."

We like how they "deleted ugly cars" from downtown.
