The largest human chain in the world goes through BERLIN . SAYPE sees beyond 30 years of falling Wall.
The land art artist SAYPE (contraction of Say and Peace), nominated by Forbes as one of the 30 most influential personalities of the cultural world, will realize in the coming years a world tour of benevolence named “Beyond Walls Project – The Biggest Human Chain in the World”.
The largest human chain in the world started on the Champ de Mars, last June, and crossed Andorra and Geneva. This international fresco of intertwined hands painted by SAYPE conveys a powerful message of optimism, benevolence and mutual aid. SAYPE chose BERLIN as 4th step. He will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall by creating two frescos, 100% biodegradable interlaced handshafts from October 30th to November 4th at the parks of Treptow, near to the Spree and Schlesischer Busch, where once passed the Berlin Wall. A surveillance tower of the former GDR remains there.
The Berlin Wall and SAYPE, international figure of Land art, have one thing in commun. In 1989, when one fell, the other was born. The festivities organized for the 30 years of the fall of the Wall bring them together today. Two artistic works of more than 2000m2 each will be painted. Beyond Walls in Berlin is carried out with the support of the Treptow-Köpenick Town Hall and with the friendly support of the Senate Department for Culture and Europe in Berlin.
SAYPE is known as THE pioneer of a new artistic movement between Street art and Land art. Hiswork has attracted a lot of interest from the media: more than 1 000 publications worldwide in recent years and a current media reach of more than 500 million people. Passionate about philosophy and „existential“ reflections, his painting explores questions about the human being. The support of his works is alive, impermanent, the fresco evolves over time and disappears with the regrowth of the grass.
