“The Man Who Measures the Clouds (Monument to the Measure of the Immeasurable)” is a never before seen and monumental sculptural finished in golden leaf, created by by artist Jan Fabre. The project of public art is open to the public on the occasion of the 58th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, installed within the Giardino di Palazzo Balbi Valier. The nine-metre high sculpture has been conceived specifically for the city of Venice to highlight the deep connection with the history of the city and reflect on the drift of both the artist himself and the entire humankind.
