SONOMA, CA.- Donum, one of the leading California Pinot Noir producers, has installed Rehearsal, a monumental wall hanging sculpture by El Anatsui.

Created out of aluminum liquor bottle caps, joined together by copper wire, the 4-metre artwork hangs within the white cube conservation space at the Donum Estate that houses Crouching Spider by Louise Bourgeois.

Placed within one of Donum’s bespoke architectural facilities, Rehearsal joins The Donum Collection, a growing collection of monumental sculptures that live harmoniously across the 200-acre Carneros Estate nestled between Napa and Sonoma wine regions.

Mei and Allan Warburg, Owners of The Donum Estate, said: We have been looking for the right Anatsui work for many years. We have seen many of his works around the world, one of the first being in Hong Kong nearly a decade ago. We were delighted to find Rehearsal this summer and love the way it hangs in dialogue with our Bourgeois sculpture.

The amazing thing about working with these metallic ‘fabrics’ is that the poverty of the materials used in no way precludes the telling of rich and wonderful stories. I believe that an artwork is something that the viewer, too, should play some positive role in shaping. I appreciate the juxtaposition of Rehearsal with Crouching Spider by the late Louise Bourgeois. I’m delighted to have my work enter the Collection and I look forward to visiting soon. Added El Anatsui

Donum is very much about community, and we bring people together with shared passions for fine wine, cultural arts and sustainability. Commented Angelica de Vere-Mabray, Chief Executive Officer of The Donum Estate added. From accessing the Donum Collection of renowned global art to enjoying our fine wines to learning about our biodynamic farming practices, each guest of the Donum Estate experiences a safe and unique opportunity to discover these complementary elements that have made our Carneros property an international destination.

The Donum Estate has one of the largest accessible, privately-owned outdoor sculpture experiences in the world that has made it an international destination. In Spring 2022, Donum will unveil a landmark new pavilion by Studio Other Spaces, the office founded by artist Olafur Eliasson and architect Sebastian Behmann.
