Hands That Hold Venice Are Sending A Strong Message (PHOTO)

Global warming is a ticking bomb whose explosion is imminent, and which should be deactivated before it is too late. In order to raise awareness of people about this important issue, Italian artist Lorenzo Quin has created a monumental sculpture for this year’s edition of Biennale.

Quin is famous by sculptures whose parts represent the parts of the human body, and this time it is t he same. The sculpture called Support is basically two human hands that are reaching out from the water of the Venice canals and they hold the building of hotel Ca Sagrado. This strong visual art calls people to react and stop the consequences of global warming before it is too late.

Yes!…so happy to say mission accomplished. SUPPORT in Venice to support this wonder of city that is threatened by climate change. I hope my art brings a new focus of attention to a global calamity that we are faced with. A big thank you to the city of Venice and to his Mayor Luigi Brugnaro for believing in this installation from the beginning, to Ca’ Sagredo hotel represented by Lorenza Lain (the force of Nature) to C and C architectural Studio, Fulvio Caputo, Marco Zanon, Ufficine delle Zattere, Luisa Flora, Tecmolde, Julio and Irene Luzan and the entire team, She Digital, Grupoo Orseolo with Rein srl and the Gondolieri of Venice. To my super team in Spain at Quinn Creations To my family, my wife and especially my son Anthony for letting me use his hands, and of course to @halcyongallery , representanted by Paul Green, Udi Sheleg and assisted by Shani, Helga and all in the gallery, because without their continued organizational, moral, artistic and financial ‘support’ none of this could have happened. #biennale2017venezia #biennale2017 #lorenzoquinn #lorenzoquinnartist #venezia #halcyongallery #support #supportart #climatechange @awesome.earth
