Invader "ATTACK OF THE SPACE WAFFLES" @ The Outsiders, LondonJuxtapoz // Monday, 28 Nov 2011
Waffles are quite seasonal, especially during the holiday season. In thinking about waffles, French street artist, Invader, is set to open a new exhibition, Attack of the Space Waffles, at The Outsiders in London on December 2, 2011. The show will feature a Space Waffle Machine discpensing hot waffles throughout the exhibition for the gallery's Christmas visitors. After playing a major role in the Banksy Exit Through the Gift Shop film, Invader now seems to garner even more attention with his exhibitions.
According to The Outsiders, "‘Attack of the Space Waffles’ is out-there, surreal, and suitably seasonal. Invader’s ‘Space Waffle Machine’ will be in operation, dispensing hot waffles throughout the exhibition for the gallery’s Christmas guests. Pre- made waffles preserved in vacuum packs will also serve as one of the many editions available at the show. An unused ‘Space Waffle Machine’ will also be for sale.
"Many unique ‘Alias’ versions of some of Invader’s most compelling recent street pieces make up the bulk of the exhibition. The mosaics are presented upon slim black Perspex boxes, with the identity cards specifying the details of the original outdoor work that inspired them inside.
"An ‘Invaded Disco Ball’ forms the exhibition’s primary installation, casting celestial visuals and interplanetary vibrations across the gallery’s main show space. A twenty-minute documentary ‘In Bed with Invader’ following the artist round one night’s work in Paris will screen in the gallery’s video room. Vending machines crafted by Invader himself will dispense fifteen all-new stickers. New print editions will also be available at the show and on theoutsiders.net. These mondo marvels and stellar souvenirs will crush everything in their path this Christmas at ‘Attack of the Space Waffles’. Plus the gallery will smell really cosy, too."
