“The sculptures in ‘burn shine fly’ aims to engender an altogether contemporary version of the sublime, one in which the smallest candle sculpture is of no less consequence than the overarching totality of the sun sculpture or the stellar marriage of the earthbound body with the waterfilled sky. The work should dazzle us and send us into a deep reflection about the marvels and mysteries of life.” – ugo rondinone

On the occasion of the 59th La Biennale di Venezia, the Scuola Grande San Giovanni Evangelista presents a major solo exhibition of work by Swiss artist Ugo Rondinone, entitled burn shine fly.

Curated by Javier Molins, burn shine fly is installed within the historic walls of one of the oldest and most important Scuole in Venice, with both iconic works by Rondinone as well as a new body of work created specifically for this exhibition.
