国際美術展来会「ヴェネツィア・ビエンナーレ 2017」に出品されたこの作品、ヴェネツィア運河から突き出した巨大な手がホテル「e Ca’ Sagredo」を支えている。

作者はロレンソ・クイン。巨大彫像からジュエリーデザインまで手掛けるアーティストだ。「Support」と名付けられたこの作品は、地球温暖化による海面上昇に警鐘を鳴らすものだ。

Halcyon Galleryの代表を務めるクインは以下のようにコメントしている。

「ヴェニスは何世紀にもわたり文化に影響を与えてきた水の芸術都市です。しかし、気候変動の脅威に晒されているヴェニスが、これからも文化の発信地であり続けるためには、我々、そして未来の世代からの”Support”が不可欠です。」

A big thank you to all for your comments and likes. It's been overwhelming. I wish I could thank each and everyone of you individually. This sculpture 'Support' placed in Venice at Ca' Sagredo, coinciding with the opening of the Venice Biennale, wants to speak to the people in a clear, simple and direct way through the innocent hands of a child and it evokes a powerful message which is that united we can make a stand to curb the climate change that affects us all. We must all collectively think of how we can protect our planet and by doing that we can protect our national heritage sites… Support our planet support our heritage! A warm hug, Lorenzo THE INSTALLATION WILL BE AT CA' SAGREDO UNTIL NOVEMBER 26th a #halcyongallery #casagredohotelvenice #lorenzoquinn #lorenzoquinnartist #biennale2017 #LorenzoQuinnVenice #support #supportart #worldheritage #worldheritagesite

'SUPPORT' in Venice to support this wonder of city that is threatened by climate change like many other world Heritage sites around the world. I hope my art brings a new focus of attention to a global calamity that we are faced with. Art in 'Support' of art: Venice is now the art capital of the world during the Venice Biennale but the city of art is threatened and needs our help and protection. ——A big thank you to the city of Venice and especially to its Mayor Luigi Brugnaro for believing in this installation from the beginning, to Ca' Sagredo hotel represented by Lorenza Lain (the force of Nature) to C and C architectural Studio, Fulvio Caputo, Marco Zanon, Ufficine delle Zattere, Luisa Flora, Tecmolde, Julio and Irene Luzan and the entire team, She Digital, Grupoo Orseolo with Rein srl and the Gondolieri of Venice. To my super team in Spain at Quinn Creations To my family, my wife and especially my son Anthony for letting me use his hands, and of course to @halcyongallery , representanted by Paul Green, Udi Sheleg and assisted by Shani, Helga and all in the gallery, because without their continued organizational, moral, artistic and financial 'support' none of this could have happened. #biennale2017venezia #biennale2017 #lorenzoquinn #lorenzoquinnartist #venezia #halcyongallery #support #supportart #climatechange Video credit: Sam Ramsden @dojofilms_sam
