We are proud to contribute to the Beyond Walls project alongside the B Corp community.
The artist Saype place to the feet of the Eiffel Tower a huge ephemeral painting, an ode to solidarity !
Thursday 13 of June, we had the pleasure to welcome in our new headquaters Singular, the belgian artist SAYPE and the french B Corp companies, who had financialy support the projet « Beyond the walls ».
Saype wanted to support the SOS Méditerranée association which chartered the Aquarius. For this reason, he imagined a masterful work of art, inspired by the move of rescuers helping migrants in the Mediterranean Sea.
Paris is the first city welcoming the project, Saype’s objectif is to create the biggest symbolic human chain by pursuing the project all over the world : Andorre, Berlin, Belfast…
The attentive and curious participants were able to understand the genesis of the project and the complexity of the performance :
- 1 year of research and development to create ecological pigments
- A complex logistics
- The constraints of a fickle weather
- A real physical performance in the realization
The work of art is ephemeral, impacting the hearts and minds without leaving any trace in the nature. « I’am very happy to have made a fresco that is almost twice the high of the Eiffel Tower, at the service of the humanity » explain the artist.
Saturday 15 of June, the work of art was opened to the public on the occasion of the World Refugee Day, organized by the Paris City Hall all along the Champ de Mars.
