Artist Lorenzo Quinn is back again with another awesome piece of art after launching his sculpture for the 2017 Venice Biennale. Quinn has built a six pairs of hands joining over the famous historic Arsenale. The project dubbed as ‘Building Bridges’ is a piece that celebrate unity and is a beautiful addition to the city.
“My work in Venice wasn’t finished with ‘Support’, my previous sculpture,” Lorenzo told Bored Panda. “In fact, it’s a trilogy. ‘Support’ was meant to encourage us to open your eyes and Building Bridges is about taking action and cultures uniting for a common good. The third piece (which will be unveiled after 2 years)… Well, you’ll just have to wait and see but I can tell you that it won’t involve any hands.”
“The human hands fascinate me because through them, I am able to spread very direct, universal messages. Plus, I’m Italian, we speak with our hands”
Quinn wanted to represent the 5 continents and the sixth one – love – bringing them all together.
