SAYPE step 11 of “Beyond Walls” project 2021-11-02

SAYPE step 11 of “Beyond Walls” project

An aerial view shows a giant landart fresco by French-Swiss artist Saype, painted for the 11th step of his worldwide “Beyond Walls” project at the Expo 2020 World Exhibition in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, October 2021.

The artwork is supported by Switzerland and was inaugurated for the country’s national day at the EXPO. The fresco covers 1500 square meters and was created using biodegradable paint produced on site with charcoal, chalk, water and milk proteins. The “Beyond Walls” project aims at creating the largest symbolic human chain around the world, promoting values such as togetherness, kindness and openness to the world.

This step will be marked by the contrast between an international event with millions of moving people and the immensity of the desert, both empty and fascinating.


The “Beyond Walls” project
In an increasingly polarised world, the artist chooses symbolically, to paint the largest human chain in the world, inviting us to embrace kindness and togetherness, this is the “Beyond Walls” project. Pairs of hands, which intertwine and travel from town to town, and form a giant chain painted on the ground symbolising union, mutual aid, and common effort beyond walls.
