Building Bridges Lorenzo Quinn for the Venice Biennale

Building Bridges (Costruendo Ponti) is the name of the work presented by sculptor Lorenzo Quinn, fifth son of famous actor Anthony Quinn, at the Arsenale Nord in Venice, a location that is part of the implementation of Biennale exhibition area. There are six bridges 15 meters high and 20 meters long, revisited in the form of hands; each sculpture represents one of the universal values of the human being: friendship, wisdom, helpfaith, hope, and love. This is not the first time that the artist has exhibited in Venice, remember that in 2017 Lorenzo presented his sculpture Support, where colossal hands held a hotel on the Grand Canal.

This time the hands symbolize the desire to overcome the concept of difference in various aspects of life: geographical, philosophical, cultural and emotional; and here the bridge becomes a symbol, which connects, unites and breaks down cultural differences in favour of a peaceful world.
