Run Beyond represents a man as he runs at breakneck speed to jump to incredible heights. The run starts, ends and begins again in a perpetual cycle that alludes to the course of human life. This is an artwork that focuses on the leap that we all must make, sooner or later, to reach freedom. Which freedom that is, Angelo Bonello doesn’t specify, that is up to the spectator to decide. Run Beyond, then, is about the power of imagination; a force so strong that it allows individuals to overcome their fears and limitations so that they can open themselves up to other cultures, new friendships and unknown worlds.
