ROBERT WILSON AND ZAHA HADID’S WORKS FOR SLAMP ON DISPLAY IN CHIANTI’S WINERIES

Posted on June 21, 2016 by Annalisa

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of director Robert Wilson’s The Watermill Centre, an interdisciplinary laboratory focusing on the arts and human studies, Slamp joins the “ART of the Treasure Hunt”, an exclusive experience organised by art collector Luziah Hennessey starting 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 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.
