INVADEROMA is the catalog for the first Italian solo show of Invader: "Roma 2010 and other curiosities".
Invader is an artist working in anonymity. Born in 1969 in Paris, he is one of the most important and original international street artists and has exhibited in many prestigious galleries and museums across the world.
Invader is known above all for his public interventions inspired to the Arcade Game Space Invaders, created in 1978 in Japan. His operations are tied up to creative practices of "interference" through which he traces unique trails in the collective space, shaping new signs in the urban landscape. The naturally public formality of his interventions - suspended between visibility and anonymity and between real and virtual spaces - as well as the choice of icons present in the collective memory and practices of the youngest generations, offers a meaningful and original reading of our cultural patrimony.
The book presents various aspect of his work: from the alias replicating the space invaders of Roma to works made with his original RubikCubism technique, by means of the colored modules of the famous puzzle, re-presenting images extrapolated from the realm of art history or popular culture, along with specific installations and curiosities. The invasion guide of Roma and the brand new 19th printed invasion map will also be presented in exclusivity at the opening.
On the occasion of the artist's presence in the city, Wunderkammern's exhibition space opens once again to the dialectic comparison between ordinary and extraordinary, by drawing its own poetry closer to Invader's narrative language. The artist revisits the urban space generating wonder and transforming daily routes into unique journeys.

Invader is an anonymous French artist that is known for his mosaics that depict characters from Space Invaders and other video games from the late 1970s which he pastes on city walls and buildings. Invader installed his first mosaic in the mid 1990s in Paris. According to the artist, it was a scout, or sentinel, because it remained the only one for several years. The series of installations, or "invasions," began in earnest in 1998. Since then, his work has spread to cities all over the world.
