Support

Global warming is a ticking bomb that we need to defuse before it explodes. To raise awareness about this modern issue, Italian artist Lorenzo Quinn has built a monumental sculpture for the 2017 Venice Art Biennale.

Quinn is widely known for incorporating elements of the human body parts in his work, and this project is no different. Titled Support, it depicts two massive hands, rising from a canal to support the Ca’ Sagredo Hotel.

It is a visual statement, that people need to respond to global warming appropriately before it’s too late. 

Support evokes both hope in trying to hold up the building above the water and fear in highlighting the fragility of the situation. It’s a powerful statement with meticulous execution.
