POETRY CORNER

SEE THE WORLD… …DIFFERENTLY • In the huge landscape painting World in Progress II, its creator, who seems to be supporting an animal folded out of paper, is easy to miss. Lying on the ground, Guillaume Legros, who works under the name Saype and lives in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, becomes part of his work. It was to be admired in September 2021 at the feet of the headquarters of the UN in New York. “Ephemeral artworks” is what Saype calls these paintings, which he sprays onto grass using biodegradable paint. World in Progress II, like the first part of the artwork that the artist created the year before at the UN‘s Geneva site, was a gift from Switzerland to the organisation for its 75th anniversary.
