Giant Hands Reaching For Each Other Becomes The Newest Monumental Sculpture In Venice



Following up on his monumental sculpture for the 2017 Venice Biennale, Support, artist Lorenzo Quinn has returned to the city with yet another phenomenal work. This time, Lorenzo built six pairs of hands joining over the historic Arsenale. At almost 50 feet (15m) high and 65 feet (20m) wide, Building Bridges is a piece that celebrates unity and is a stunning addition to the city as it hosts the 58th Venice Biennale.

“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”
