As part of artgenève’s outdoor sculpture project, Blain|Southern will present Back to Venice, a monumental sculpture by Lynn Chadwick.
The work, which will be sited on the banks of Lake Geneva, was created in 1988 when Chadwick was invited to contribute a major figure group to a special international sculpture survey at the Venice Biennale. As an acknowledgement of his success at 1956 exposition, where he won the International Prize for Sculpture, he submitted the aptly named Back to Venice.
Chadwick is one of eleven artists participating in the project. Others include Adel Abdessemed, Lilian Bourgeat and Christian Gonzenbach.Back to news
