BUILDING BRIDGES by Lorenzo Quinn

Lorenzo Quinn is back in Venice Building Bridges is the new work of art by Lorenzo Quinn installed at the Arsenale in Venice and it will be visible up to the end of November.
It consists of six pairs of hands that create a bridge.

This sculpture represents the entire humanity, which can go beyond any border: human beings all together can do great things.

To build bridges, in Quinn’s mind, is the nature of Venice itself: all throughout its History, Venice broke all cultural, religious and political barriers, thanks to the fact that commerce brought the Venetian merchants in touch with a number of different civilizations. And from the Arsenale, the ship yard, the Venetian ships would leave in order to reach far away markets where to purchase spices, precious cloths, luxury oriental goods that would then be imported to the Lagoon.
