Saype - Timeshot

25 April - 15 June 2024 Paris
"Impacting mindsets without impacting nature"
Young French artist Guillaume Legros, aka Saype, has already proved his worth, and is no stranger to the art scene. In 2018, his self-financed project in support of the SOS Méditerranée association, created in the heart of Geneva, was seen by 120 million people worldwide. In 2019, Forbes named him one of the thirty most influential people under thirty in art and culture. In 2022, he took part in the official program of the Venice Biennale. In 2024, he takes part in the Urban Vision exhibition at the Jupiter Museum of Art in Shenzhen (China), underlining his growing influence in the international art world. To crown this milestone, from April 26 to June 15, 2024, Galerie Danysz presents Saype's first Paris exhibition.

Known for his monumental frescoes created on the ground, mainly on grass, Saype is distinguished by a comprehensive artistic approach, as evidenced by his ephemeral installations. Following in the footsteps of such greats as Robert Smithson, Jeanne Claude and Christo, or Andres Amador, Saype's impressive Land art combines monumental ephemeral works with perennial ones that capture the essence of his performances - from photographs to remnant fragments, to abstract pixels derived from his artistic process.
