Bill Viola [exposition], Paris, Grand Palais, Galeries nationales, 5 mars-21 juillet 2014 by Bill Viola( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Génie de l'art vidéo, Bill Viola a construit tout son oeuvre autour de la perception sensorielle de la condition humaine. De la naissance à la mort, il interroge le temps, la conscience, le souffle, et les trempe aux sources des grands mystiques, en écho à Bosch ou à Giotto. La métaphysique qu'il donne à vivre peint la solitude, le vieillissement ou le rapport à l'autre. Bill Viola nous raconte. À l'occasion de la première rétrospective que la France consacre à cet immense artiste américain, le Grand Palais vous tend ce livre miroir. C'est un catalogue interactif, un livre, à voir et à entendre, pour se connaître soi-même."--Page 4 of cover
Bill Viola : visioni interiori by Bill Viola( Book )
9 editions published in 2008 in Italian and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hatsu Yume First dream by Bill Viola( Visual )
7 editions published between 1981 and 2006 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Hatsu-Yume (First Dream) is Bill Viola's masterpiece, the greatest work by one of the most important video artists in the world. A spiritual allegory equating light and dark with life and death. Hatsu-Yume was produced in Japan in 1981 while Viola was artist-in-residence at the Sony Corporation. The title refers to Japanese folklore, where in things done on the first day of a new year are significant. But the tape is not to be taken literally as a dream. For Viola, it's more like the aboriginal concept of dreamtime, the creation of the world. That's why, as a whole and in its parts, Hatsu-Yume progresses from darkness to light, stillness to motion, silence to sound, simplicity to complexity, nature to civilization (Quelle: Verlagsinformation)

8 editions published in 2002 in German and English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bill Viola : the passions by Bill Viola( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In his opening essay, John Walsh traces Viola's development as a video artist and the intellectual and spiritual concerns that have preoccupied him over the years. And in "The Artist in His Studio," Walsh offers a rare first-person account of the making of Emergence, a new work commissioned by the Getty for the exhibition. A transcription of a recent conversation between Bill Viola and Hans Belting reveals the roots of Viola's involvement with image making and the role that older works of art have played in his development. Peter Sellars explores the spiritual foundations and meaning of Viola's work in a remarkable essay that is as much meditation as study, while Viola himself selects some fifteen works of art, which, along with pages from his personal notebooks, represent the sources that have inspired the Passions series. Finally, Kira Perov has selected and organized frame sequences from each of the twenty Passions pieces, accompanied by the artist's descriptions. Altogether, Bill Viola: The Passions is a thorough and richly illustrated study of a new and compelling group of works by this seminal contemporary artist."--BOOK JACKET

3 editions published between 1979 and 2005 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anthem by Bill Viola( Visual )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Anthem is a post-industrial lamentation, built around the single piercing scream of a young girl as she stands in the vast chamber of Union Station in Los Angeles. The scream is extended in time and shifted in frequency to produce a scale of harmonic notes. Overlaid with this are numerous images from our daily environment paralled to the human body--giant oil pumps and the beating of a human heart ; cars on a freeway and blood flowing through veins ; tree branches in an ancient forest and modern surgical technology, all interspersed with the image of the girl screaming

Bill Viola : las pasiones by Bill Viola( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La muestra presenta una serie de doce vídeos realizados por Viola en los últimos tres años, en los que, a través de un estudio riguroso de la gestualidad y una estricta puesta en escena, se revive el misterio de las antiguas tablas medievales y renacentistas sobre la Pasión de Cristo, en un contexto espiritual que no se corresponde al de la época en que fueron creadas, enfrentándose al problema de la representación de las emociones en los rostros y cuerpos de los modelos -actores en el caso de Viola-, que se mueven a cámara lenta, en un espacio íntimo y silencioso, en grandes pantallas planas, similares a pinturas murales, revelando el poder y la complejidad de las expresiones emocionales. Se presenta también "The Crossing", una videoinstalación que muestra la desaparición de la figura humana por la acción de dos fuerzas naturales opuestas, el agua y el fuego

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Kira Perov moderates a panel discussion of a new production of Tristan und Isolde, which was first presented in concert form in Los Angeles in December 2004, and received its fully staged premere in Paris at the National Opera Bastille in April 2005, directed by Peter Sellars, with video by Bill Viola, under the musical direction of Esa-Pekka Salonen. Gerard Mortier, director of the Paris Opera, speaks about the difficulty of staging Tristan und Isolde, the origins of the opera and its themes. Two excerpts from the Paris production are shown (these excerpts include both the live staging and the video component.) Bill Viola speaks about how he became involved with the project and his reactions to the opera how the video imagery explores the themes of love and death. Two excerpts of the video (without music or staging) are shown, and Viola discusses how they were created. Viola also incorporated the video material he created for Tristan und Isolde in a museum installation called LOVE/DEATH: the Tristan project
