Acute Art is delighted to present HOLIDAY SPACE, a free new AR work by KAWS.
On 16th August, in collaboration with AllRightsReserved, the artist launched this iconic COMPANION figure into space, in celebration of the character’s 20th anniversary. Using a sounding balloon, the KAWS:HOLIDAY SPACE sculpture was sent up 41.5km into the stratosphere, and took a two hour zero gravity walk before retuning to Earth.
“So many projects have been cancelled this year. I wanted to create one that could be experienced safely from home. Because this year marks 20 years since I created COMPANION, I tried to find a way around all the restrictions and do something special,” says KAWS. “I felt so confined the past few months that creating a project like this has really given me a chance to escape.”
