KAWS Holiday Space Figure “Black” 2020


Categories: , ,

Released in 2020, in the “Holiday Space” series KAWS brought back his astronaut Companion, the same series as the one used for his redesign of the MTV Music Video
Awards Moonman in 2013. This release, titled KAWS:HOLIDAY SPACE featured in three colours “Gold” “Silver” and “Black”, and is a celebration of 20 years of the KAWS Companion and an extension of the KAWS:HOLIDAY rollouts in Seoul, Taipei, Hong Kong, Japan and now, its fifth stop in space. Using a sounding balloon, the KAWS:HOLIDAY SPACE 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,” Said KAWS. “Because this year marks 20 years since I created COMPANION, I tried to find a way around all the restrictions and do something special. I felt so confined the past few months that creating a project like this has really
given me a chance to escape.
