This is Not a Game, Sculpture of Giant Hands Playing with Life-Sized Tank and Toy Soldiers

This is not a game by Lorenzo Quinn

“This is not a game” by artist Lorenzo Quinn is a large-scale sculptural installation of giant hands playing with a life-sized tank and toy soldiers. Exhibited on a floating platform at the 2011 Venice Bienalle, the installation featured a 37-ton Russian T-55 tank.

The human figure and especially hands show up frequently in Quinn’s work. In recent years he has created two other more playful installations of hands playing with life-sized toys. The 2010 installation “Vroom Vroom” features a giant hand playing with a Fiat Cinquecento car. “La Dolce Vita” is a 2011 installation of a giant hand playing with a Vespa scooter.
