Sam Ali, a young sensitive and impulsive Syrian, left his country for Lebanon to escape the war. To be able to travel to Europe and live with the love of his life, he accepts to have his back tattooed by one of by the World’s most sulfurous contemporary artist. Turning his own body into a prestigious piece of art, Sam will however come to realize that his decision might actually mean anything but freedom.

„This project is born from the encounter between two worlds. The world of contemporary art, and more particularly the work of the Belgian artist Wim Delvoye and the world of political refugees – especially Syrian refugees, their struggle with travel documents and residency permits. I have indeed asked myself: „What would happen if a famous artist offered to a refugee to become his work of art to solve his freedom of movement problem?”.
