Artistic support

Two gigantic hands seem to be holding up the very old and very beautiful Ca’ Sagredo Hotel which overlooks the Grand Canal in Venice. The larger-than-life sculpture called Support was created by Italian artist Lorenzo Quinn and was installed in May as part of the Venice Biennale International Art Exhibition, which runs until November 26. The hands represent humanity’s ability to be both creative and destructive as well as our capacity to make positive and negative impacts on history and the environment. Quinn made the hands in his Barcelona studio; they’re modelled after those of one of his three children. He often thinks about the world that will be passed on to them. A March study published in Quaternary International predicted that if global warming isn’t curbed in the next few decades, all of Venice will be underwater by 2100.
