Waiting with peace and darkness

- Curated by Robert Wilson

The iconic American director and visual artist shone a light on the Japanese

inspiratio­n behind his theatrical production­s, notably Puccini’s Madame Butterfly. The atmospheri­c exhibition

immersed guests in Wilson’s staging genius, as he transforme­d the former 1960s Gandini swimming pool into a dramatic theatrical stage with his

signature use of lighting, sound, costumes, artworks, videos, props and furniture. At the entrance, an evocative film featuring portraits of the 99-yearold Japanese choreograp­her Suzushi Hanayagi, with close-ups of her nobly

lined face, set the tone.
