Giant hands rise from Venice’s canals to support the city against the constantly rising sea levels. Lorenzo Quinn created this green art installations as a protest against how climate change is affecting historic sites not just in Venice, but worldwide.

NGO’s, green companies, artists and regular people need to stand up against governments that are not fighting climate change because this is the only way our world and society will change for the better.

For people living on top of hills or high up in the mountains, climate change may not seem like the biggest problem on Earth. However, for Venetians, the people of Maldives and all the small island nations, rising sea levels means losing their homeland forever. This may very well be an irreversible process or most of these places, especially if we don’t act fast.

With artists like Lorenzo Quinn who created the artistic installation called ‘Support’ specifically for the 2017 Venice Biennale, we hope that more and more people will start raising awareness about the biggest problem facing our planet today – Global warming – Climate change!

“I hope my art brings a new focus of attention to a global calamity that we are faced with,” writes Lorenzo Quinn.

Yes!…so happy to say mission accomplished. SUPPORT in Venice to support this wonder of city that is threatened by climate change. I hope my art brings a new focus of attention to a global calamity that we are faced with. A big thank you to the city of Venice and to his 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

“This sculpture’ success is because it speaks 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’ 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.
