Fresco for Euro Cup, Mairie de Paris, 2016
We were invited by the Mairie de Paris and the Swedish embassy to represent Sweden, in a collective artwork where 24 countries were asked to come together to create a kilometre long fresco along the bank of the Seine during the Euro Cup 2016. Each participant were given a set of geometric shapes, colours and a set of rules. With Sweden having the highest number of asylum seekers per million habitants, and football being the most widely played sport in the world, we wanted to represent the cultural diversity of Sweden. The maze is based on the statistics of immigration to Sweden. Just a couple of days after the Fresco was painted, Paris was hit with flooding, bursting the banks of the Seine the fresco was flooded!
