Bill Viola : Installations
This richly illustrated book accompanies a solo exhibition of works by the American media artist Bill Viola (b. 1951) at the Deichtorhallen museum in Hamburg.
Viola has long explored core themes of human life, birth, emotion, spirituality, love and death with a particular interest in the mystical traditions of Christianity, Zen Buddhism and Islam. His works convey the experience of the sublime and the spiritual in the global language of the 21st century, encouraging the viewer to reflect on the fundamental questions of life and one's own existence.
The book features 80 full-colour plates drawn from the 13 video installations exhibited at the show alongside essays by Bill Viola, Dirk Luckow, Dorothee Bhm and Wulf Herzogenrath.
