The Torn Cloud

The Torn Cloud

The Torn Cloud is the title of a work created by Danae Valenza in collaboration with Simon McGuinness. Cast Bronze hands clasp onto a large, custom built scaffold that intends to represent potentialities and tiny phenomena of an urban, built environment and the (inter) personal reflections that are created within it. A structure, held together by the unified hands and actions of a movement or community

Temporary/permanent. A scaffold bigger than the sum of its parts. Tall buildings cast shadows. From atop, people glint, pulse through streets with a hum. Flecks of stone in the pavement become a tiny phenomenon. Phone lines are electric with human voices. If you could reach so far to tear a cloud, where would you go from there?
