Peter Greenaway


Renown british film maker Peter Greenaway has been working on a series of live performances through music and projections onto great historical paintings. Ten Classic Paintings Revisitedformulates a dialogue "between 8,000 years of art and 112 years of cinema". In 2008 he began collaborating with Factum Arte on his interpretation of Leonardo Da Vinci's Last Supper, projected onto a facsimile in Santa Maria delle Grazie which was accompanied by a three dimensional replica of the table portrayed in the painting.

Plans for other historical paintings in the series led to a second collaboration on the massive Wedding at Cana by Paolo Veronese. The performance took place in the refectory of San Giorgio Maggiore, where the painting originally rested. Here, the facsimile had been installed permanently by Factum Arte and Greenaway orchestrated his display of sound and images on it to great critical acclaim in 2009.
