Basilica of Saint-Denis

Saint-Denis 2022

By selecting the unique talent of Saddo to intervene on the hoarding of the archaeological excavations that foreshadow the spire's construction site, the city of Saint-Denis and Legendre Immobilier offer the residents a fresh perspective on this transforming territory.

For this artwork dedicated to the Basilica of Saint-Denis, Saddo provides a comprehensive vision of the identity of the Dionysian territory by constructing a narrative fresco reminiscent of the basilica's stained glass windows. Amidst numerous historical and cultural symbols, the residents will be able to identify the spire construction project, a significant undertaking for the city of Saint-Denis.

Saddo also depicts moments of joy and celebration, echoing the city's annual music festival held in the basilica. Dionysians rediscover in his artwork the numerous distinct characteristics of their place of living.
