During #DIVA, a platform project by De Invasie (The Invasion), young designers from various disciplines (graphics, design, fashion, movie,…) get the opportunity to present and sell their work. This time De Invasie takes place in Antwerp with over 70 young, creative warriors ‘putting up camp’ in the centre of the city at the former Ethnographic museum at Suikerrui 19 on Saturday March 23rd and Sunday March 24th.

In collaboration with De Invasie, MoMu selected two graphic warriors: Matthias Phlips and Laura Bergans to present their work on the walls of our entrance hall until Sunday March 24th. They came up with an installation with posters with their works. Laura has drawn her inspiration from Henri Matisse, a French artist known for his use of colors and bold patterns. She used his patterns and added her own twist on it. Mathias played with the idea of returning patterns and shapes: ‘I started to draw without thinking and created my own patterns.’
