Tagliapietra Endeavor

Listen as curator Tina Oldknow, describes Endeavor by Italian artist Lino Tagliapietra. A sense of weightlessness characterizes this instillation of 18 boatlike forms. Inspired by the sight of the many gondolas that gather at the entrance of the Venetian lagoon on the feast day of the Ascension of the Virgin, Tagliapietra imagined the colorful wooden boats as abstract shapes floating in space.
