Gold Columns at the Venice Biennale | H. Mack

 

Paralleling the Architecture Biennale, nine columns—more than seven metres high and covered with a golden mosaic—stand in front of the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore, bearing the sky above them. The golden mosaic consisting of over 800,000 tesserae is an example of the long tradition of local craftsmanship, representing Venice’s early cultural relations between Orient and Occident. The sculptural ensemble serves as an instrument of light performance, adding a widely visible source of fascination to the rich cityscape of Venice. For more than 60 years, Heinz Mack has worked as a painter and sculptor.
