DREAMING WITH EYES WIDE OPEN
Set against the magnificent backdrop of Bramante’s Renaissance masterpiece, a sequence of contemporary artworks – several of which were specially redesigned for the spaces hosting them – become a single narrative about dreams. Bill Viola, Anish Kapoor, Luigi Ontani, Mario Merz, James Turrell and Anselm Kiefer take viewers on a journey highlighting the various stages of a dream, including a confrontation with nature, the identification of shapes, the recollection of memories, time travel, the sublimation of shadows and an immersion in light.
