You may recall this photo, taken outside the Madonna dell’Orto, in which my attempt to get a clear shot of the sculpture was stymied by the pesky tourist photo-bombers.
Well, I gave it another try, once the exhibition in the cloister of this church in Cannaregio had opened.
The exhibition is Chiamata e risposta (Call and response), and is well worth seeing. It is open until 22 November.
First of all, you get a chance to see the rarely open cloister:
Emily Young uses “rock from quarries near her studio in the Etruscan hills” to produce her beautiful, powerful sculptures.
A fragment from the past leans casually against a wall.
And, I did wonder who had done the taxidermy work on these two avians.
PS The pesky tourists enjoyed this exhibition, also.
