Critical Review

This signed screen print from 2013 is a limited edition of 50 from Invader’s Space collection. The print reproduces a photograph of Invader’s famous Space One mosaic with a view in the background of the Earth’s stratosphere.

This incredible and rare piece was produced by the artist following his Art4Space project, which he launched in 2012. The photograph portrayed by the print was taken through a camera that the artist had strategically located on a helium balloon, an ‘artisanal spacecraft’, which he then proceeded to launch into space, where it stayed for a short time before landing back to Earth. This made the piece the first-ever artwork to have gone to space, and indeed to have returned. Following this project, Invader released the short film which recorded the journey of the artwork, the most important snapshot of which is here portrayed in the print. What ensued has been a consistent engagement on behalf of the artist within an invasion of both outer space, which he carried on through his Space2 mosaic, and space stations, which he is currently marking with his video game characters.

Thus, the print celebrates this seminal moment in Invader’s career, as well as in the history of art, and attests to the artist’s interest in outer space, also expressed in works like his Space Waffle from 2011.
