No 51 Saype

France (1989)

Which Legacy?

A pioneer in the field of painting on grass, Saype has been producing gigantic, outdoor temporary frescoes with a 100% biodegradable mixture he prepares himself. Between land art and street art, his figurative works blend in with the

natural alpine landscape. Continuing his series of large-scale, in-situ organic frescoes and especially for Festival Images, Saype will create a custom-made work in a park next to Tour-de-Peilz Castle. Visible only with a drone or by climbing the corner tower of the medieval fortress, this monumental artwork proposes a reflection on sustainable development in society and on the values we wish to transmit to future generations.
