It’s the year 2013, if you’re reading this Earth has shockingly survived the Mayan prediction and prophetic date of December 21st, 2012. Since this is being written in the past, it’s not certain what has happened to humankind. Did Earth collide with planet X? Or was the cataclysm of 2012 a positive physical and/or spiritual transformation for humanity. Be as it may, hopefully this day will mark the beginning of a new exciting era.
Appropriately, the Strychnin Gallery thought about the possible consequences of this event and concluded that an advisory show must be made: ATTENTION EARTH! A show that presents viewers what is yet to happen or what has already come...
Strychnin Gallery wanted to pay tribute to one of our favorite apocalyptic forecasts; the extraterrestrial invasion! The year 2013 celebrates the 60th anniversary of two 1950’s sci-fi classics: H.G. Well’s War of the Worlds and Invaders from Mars. An artistical and aesthetic admiration that only this era and genre can boast about are their iconic poster artwork. Put two and two together and so was born a show that will immortalize not only the making of these films, but also the following of all sci-fi and space life believers.
For one month, we will be home to exclusive renditions of cult classic interpretations of alien-life, unidentified flying objects, laser guns, tripods and weapons of mass destruction. Instead of shying from the unavoidable invasion, we have brought the invasion to our premises! The artists involved took inspiration from the aesthetics of all promotional and cinematographical work of this cinematic generation.
