William Kentridge for Ornellaia

Kentridge

South African artist William Kentridge was chosen by winemaker Ornellaia for the 10th edition of their charity art project Vendemmia d’Artista, which every year invites an internationally renowned artist to create a design for a limited edition of bottles and a site specific work for Ornellaia’s estate in Tuscany.

For the project, Kentridge has realised artworks inspired from the character that best describes Ornellaia’s 2015 vintage: the Charisma. Nine rare and large format bottles will be auctioned by Sotheby’s at a fundraising event taking place at the Victoria & Albert Museum this May. The proceeds from the auction will be entirely devolved to the museum.
