This is what Lorenzo Quinn's new maxi installation on Lake Iseo will look like

There will be a return to walking on Lake Iseo: after Christo, Lorenzo Quinn's new maxi installation.

A video of the artist’s project for Lake Iseo appeared on Lorenzo Quinn ’s official Facebook profile in recent days: two large hands coming out of the water and joining together to support a globe. The actor Anthony Quinn’s son has conceived a new art installation, entitled You are the world: the two hands will be made above a walkway on which people will be able to walk, in front of the pilings in Sulzano (Brescia).

In 2016, Lake Iseo had been the protagonist of another art project that attracted a very high number of visitors: Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s The Floating Piers, floating footbridges that joined the village of Sulzano to the hamlet of Peschiera Maraglio in Monte Isola and the islet of San Paolo.

Lorenzo Quinn’s project for Lake Iseo refers to another installation by the same artist, Building Bridges, completed at the entrance to the Venice Arsenal in 2019: six pairs of hands that, starting from the two banks, form a kind of bridge, as a symbol of union.

The video rendering was also shared by the Municipality of Sulzano. It will be a “monument to rebirth,” said Sulzano Mayor Paola Pezzotti. “At the end of 2017 we spoke with Lorenzo Quinn and, in February 2018, he brought us his design idea to be built in the lake area in front of the Palafitte,” the mayor added. “A call for bids had then been opened on the property, and the installation project had been at a standstill. With 2021 we want to take it up again, work on it together with the territory, because we need more than ever beauty, positivity, revitalization to get out of the crisis caused by the pandemic.” “The details of the project still need to be refined,” he concluded. “The study of materials has already been done. I am convinced that it is a duty of the Administrations to work on these works to get out of this dark and crisis moment. In addition, knowing the critical issues in our area, we will be able to better organize ourselves to avoid the difficulties encountered in 2016. This year will be dedicated to work on the implementation of the project, which we aim to become a reality in 2022. It will definitely be a team, choral and territorial work: the goal is the involvement of the entire district in a revitalization perspective.”

However, the maxi installation will be realized after 2021, probably as early as 2022.
