“The sculptures in ‘burn shine fly’ aim to bring forth a wholly contemporary version of the sublime, one in which the smallest candle sculpture is no less significant than the overarching totality of solar sculpture or the stellar connection of the earthbound body to the water-filled sky. The work is meant to dazzle us and make us think about the wonders and mysteries of life.” – Ugo Rondinone

Curated by Javier Molins, the burn shine fly exhibition is installed within the historic walls of one of the oldest and most important scuole in Venice and features both iconic works by Rondinone and new works created especially for this exhibition.

The exhibition will soon be accompanied by a bilingual catalogue in English and Italian with an essay by the curator Javier Molins, published by Skira.
