For the fifteenth stage of the worldwide artwork “Beyond Walls” in Rio de Janeiro, Saype strives to bridge the impassable length involving Benin (tenth phase of the project) and Brazil. Therefore letting all those who left across the ocean by no means to return, to truly feel yet again the determined embrace of those people who observed them drift away forever… from African origin to American spot, from light to evening, from liberty to slavery.
The huge eco dependable landart paintings by Saype ended up designed on the Estàcio favela (825m2) and Copacabana beach (1.500m2). These two artworks had been established applying pure pigments produced out of charcoal and chalk. “Beyond Walls” global task aims to one-way links much more than 30 metropolitan areas over the planet to encourage the message of togetherness.
Further than partitions erected by people between people today, Saype went to meet up with the regional communities in the Estacìo favela.
Amongst the postcard image of Copacabana, which however bears the tragic marks of record, and the favela, the gigantic palms of “Beyond Walls” try to triumph over the fractures of the earlier as well as all those that are still very existing. They remind us that it is only by means of cooperation that walls drop down and that the common gets a truth: “the common is the area minus the walls” (Miguel Torga).
In an increasingly polarised planet, the artist chooses to paint symbolically the biggest human chain in the entire world, inviting us to embrace kindness and togetherness, this is the “Beyond Walls” project. Pairs of arms, which intertwine and vacation from city to city, and variety a big chain painted on the floor symbolising union, mutual help, and typical energy past walls.
