French artist Invader is internationally known for his pixelated mosaic “space invaders” which he has placed in over 60 cities around the world for almost 20 years. In 2014, the artist launched the third wave of his “invasion” in Hong Kong 13 years after he first hit the city.
The works showed a significant evolution, displaying characters from local culture and classic cartoons, but still in the artist’s immediately recognisable pixel aesthetic. This invasion was also unique as nearly 90% of his artworks were removed from the walls of the city within a few weeks, wiped out by an over-zealous local highway cleaning crew. Named after this strange undertaking, the exhibition will restore Invader’s creative universe with pieces from the recent Hong Kong invasion, along with never-before seen videos, new LED artworks, and new monumental sculptures.
