Lorenzo Quinn SUPPORT: A Powerful Message About Rising Sea Levels

Artist Lorenzo Quinn is known for his work with the human body, specifically hands, that he incorporates into everything from large-scale sculptures down to jewelry designs. He has just finished the installation of a monumental sculpture for the 2017 Venice Biennale. Titled ‘Support’, the piece depicts a pair of gigantic hands rising from the water to support the sides of the Ca’ Sagredo Hotel, a visual statement of the impact of climate change and rising sea levels on the historic city and the fact that people need to respond to global warming appropriately before it’s too late: ‘Venice is a floating art city that has inspired cultures for centuries, but to continue to do so it needs the support of our generation and future ones, because it is threatened by climate change and time decay’.
