Jaume Plensa. Together
Basilica di San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice
7 May – 22 November 2015
A quartet of new installations by one of Spain’s leading sculptors the Catalan-born Jaume Plensa, displayed in the Palladian church of San Giorgio Maggiore as part of the Venice Biennale. The display Together, curated by Clare Lilley, Director of Programmes at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, creates a ‘conversation’ between two sculpted heads above which, hanging from the Basilica’s dome, is suspended a hand formed from letters of eight different alphabets. Another sculpture, placed in the nave, and drawings related to the installations will be shown at the Fondazione Cini’s library, in its “Nuova Manica Lunga“.
