‘The Unbearable Lightness of Being’ is twofold: it explores the idea of ‘something higher’, in Kundera’s words, in life and expresses the struggles and tensions that come with it – similar to the artistic processes of production. I was impressed to discover the Tornabuoni Collection, begun in Florence by the gallery founder Roberto Casamonti, and its wide range of interests. I am drawn to art of the 20th century and especially to the post-war era, which is important for understanding the art of today. In my career, I mainly work with living artists. With this exhibition I had the fortunate opportunity to explore a new terrain, and to work with art historical documents and narratives, discovering beautiful artworks by seminal artists along the way.
