A walk-through of the exhibition, HUMAN, with Sean Scully. The artist discusses the relationship between his work and Venice, as well as the inspiration for his tallest sculpture to date, Opulent Ascension.

From abstraction to figuration, from painting to sculpture, HUMAN encapsulates both the diversity of Scully's practice and the consistency of his artistic goal: 'my work', Scully declares, 'is an attempt to release the spirit'.
