Toy Story in Venice:
Absurd Artwork occupies historic Basilica
If McDonald’s were looking for a new toy to include in their Happy Meals, they would need to look no further than the atrocity currently on display in the 16th-century Basilica of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice.
The piece is entitled “Opulent Ascension” and was perpetrated by 74-year-old Irish-American “artist” Sean Scully. It is part of Scully’s ongoing HUMAN exhibition (May 8 – Oct. 13, 2019) and placed directly in the nave of the church, blocking the view to the sanctuary.
