INVADER French - Born in 1969 ALIAS LND_38 - 2007 Mosaic tiles, resin, plexiglas and identity card Signed with the logogram and dated This work corresponds to the invasion 38 made in June 1999 in London and located Shelton st. / Endell St. Since 1998, Invader has been working on a project he calls Reality Game. He invades public spaces all over the globe with his clearly recognizable logo, inspired by the arcade game Space Invaders. The invasion has become global from Tokyo to New York via London, Hong Kong, and even Tanzania. The invasion campaign began in Paris, with over 1,200 interventions by Invader on the walls of the French capital. His goal: to invade and cover the entire city. Each mosaic he creates is unique and designed for a specific location, collected in books recounting different city invasions. Each one emphasizes the specific qualities of a given location and catch the eye of passers-by, encouraging them to reflect or simply contemplate the result. Gaming is still an integral part of Invader's world. Each mosaic wins you points in the game Flash Invader, developed by the artist. Similarly, everyone can contribute to this vast planetary project and can create their own invasions of urban space using "invasion kits". h: 20 w: 24 cm Provenance : Lazarides Gallery, London Acquired directly from the above by the present owner Bibliographie : London invasion / Bad men part II, exhibition catalogue at Lazarides gallery, Lazarides edition, London, 2007, the Space Invader in situ reproduced page 05 Estimation 100 000 - 150 000 HKD Sold for 138,200 HKD
