Seeing Venice in the fog, Damien Hirst and seeing the hands emerging from the Canale Grande and supporting Ca´Sagredo Hotel – these were kind of the main reasons for my trip to Venice in November and I got lucky on two of them!
“Support” by Italian artist Lorenzo Quinn
The limbs rest against the Ca’ Sagredo Hotel, dually using the walls as a support system while also appearing powerful enough to dismantle it. The artwork serves as a harrowing visual reminder of the rising sea levels caused by climate change. (Hypebeast)
