on display until november 26th outside the ca’ sagredo hotel in venice, italian artist lorenzo quinn‘s support sculpture features two large hands emerging from the grand canal for the venice art biennale 2017. represented by the halcyon gallery, the massive sculpture aims to make a statement on the effects of global warming. Quinn, known to use body parts – and especially hands – in his sculptures, uses the gigantic limbs as a force of nature that braces the canal-side structure, both reinforcing it in the face of decay while at the same time suggesting a force of nature equally capable of destroying it. the commentary exposes the fragility of our built and natural environment and its susceptibility to the forces of nature and man.
