This ceramic mosaic from 2017 is a limited edition of 25 from Invader’s Invasion Kits series. It represents one of Invader’s famous Space Invader characters, which he drew from the Japanese Taito video game, rendered here through white ceramic tiles. The Invader is represented against a simple red backdrop and looks towards the viewer.
Made for Over the Influence, a Los Angeles and Hong Kong-based gallery, this piece is perhaps one of the most poignant and significant of Invader’s production, epitomising the artist’s philanthropic work. Having held different solo exhibitions for Over the Influence, one in 2018 entitled Into The White Cube in Los Angeles and the most recent one in Hong Kong entitled Hanging, Invader partnered with the gallery in 2017 to distribute a very limited set of this Invasion Kit.
The Kit was made especially for Médicins Sans Frontièrs (Doctors without borders), an international humanitarian organisation providing medical care in conflict zones and countries affected by endemic diseases. Thus all the profits made from the sales were directed automatically to help the organisation.
This is the first time in which Invader makes explicit his philanthropic engagement, making this piece an incredible and invaluable collector’s find.
