one of my favorite 2015 venice art biennale collateral events.  six sculptures by american artist, ursula von rydingsvard, installed in the giardino della marinaressa.

modular assemblages.  constructed from uniform cedar beams.  individually marked and cut.  then, patinaed with graphite.

‘in making these paintings i was preoccupied with my memories of venice,

the movement of the water,

how it heaves against the brick and stone of the city.’

-sean scully

french businessman and art collector françois pinault purchased the eight paintings for €8 million (US$8.9 million).

180,000 keys.  250 miles (400 km) of red yarn.  suspended over two boats.  symbolizing two hands catching a rain of countless memories.
