17 Juni 2016 Die Kunstwerke von Wilson und Hadid zwischen den Weinkellern und -Schenken des Chiantis

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of director Robert Wilson’s The Watermill Center, an interdisciplinary laboratory focusing on the arts and human studies, Slamp joins the “ART of the Treasure Hunt”, an exclusive experience organized by art collector Luziah Hennessey. It will explore Tuscany, starting on June 30, 2016.

La Traviata, the light sculpture designed by Robert Wilson for Slamp, will be the star of a site-specific installation in the historic Felsina cantina in Castelnuovo Berardenga, Siena. Wilson’s three light sculptures create a “polychrome” landscape suspended above the immense wooden barrels of Chianti Classico, as seen in the exclusive photograph shot by Massimo Listri.

In parallel, an additional two “La Traviata” light sculptures are on display in the Relais & Châteaux Borgo San Felice chapel. At the same resort, Dame Zaha Hadid is honoured with an installation of the Aria Gold , a new collection presented this past April. The lamps’ haunting aura will cast an air of mystery in one of the Winery’s hidden vinsantaie.

Robert Wilson will personally be in Florence July 1 to accept the keys to the city from the mayor, and following the presentation of a short film at the Cinema Odeon, will hold a conversation on the role of light.

Robert Wilson and Zaha Hadid’s works will be on display, every day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. until October, 2016. The wineries are ten kilometers from one another.
