On Thursday, in Venice, appeared the colossal hands transported by a barge along the Grand Canal. Those who witnessed the singular scene easily realized that it was one of the installations of the Art Biennale, while the “mystery” on their destination was resolved later.
The work was carried to the hotel Ca ‘Sagredo and placed there. The beautiful piece of art is between 8 and 9 meters high and represents two hands symbolizing the palace…
The artist is the famous sculptor Lorenzo Quinn, “Hands – they are tools that can destroy the world so much as to save it, and transmit an instinctive feeling of nobility and greatness that can also cause anxiety, as the generous gesture of supporting the building highlights fragility”
