Bill Viola by John G Hanhardt( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bill Viola began producing video works in the early 1970s and since then has captivated audiences with his poignant and beautifully wrought interpretations of human experience. Viola has explored the possibilities of electronic, visual, and sound practices throughout his career and is today one of the most celebrated proponents of video art. This is the first monograph to chart Viola’s career in full, covering his education in New York, his earliest major films, his retrospective at the Whitney Museum in 1997, and his recent installations in Venice, New York, Tokyo, London, and Berlin. Renowned curator and specialist in video art John Hanhardt outlines the key visual, literary, and spiritual influences in Viola’s work and his changing approach to the medium of film as its technology advances. Woven into the discussion are illustrations of Viola’s most significant works, including Information (1973), The Passing (1991), The Greeting (1995), Going Forth by Day (2002), and Martyrs, the 2014 film commissioned for St Paul’s Cathedral in London, as well as reproductions of Viola’s sketches and notebooks that bring his working process to life.--Publisher website

"An epic journey in five chapters ... a personal investigation into the inner states and connections to animal consciousness we all possess ... Bill Viola and Kira Perov gathered images for this video work over a period of two years. In the course of their travels they spent several weeks with a freely roaming herd of buffalo in Wind Cave National Park, South Dakota, recorded a time-lapse sequence beside a glacial lake in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, and attended a week-long firewalking ritual at a Hindu Temple on the island of Fiji"--Back of container

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 49 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

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La muestra presenta una serie de veinte 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

Anthem by Bill Viola( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 7 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 by David A Ross( Book )

3 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bill Viola (b. 1951) is widely acknowledged as the leading video artist on the international scene. His video installations - total environments that envelop the viewer in image and sound - employ sophisticated state-of-the-art technologies and are distinguished by their precision and direct simplicity." "This catalogue has been published in conjunction with "Bill Viola," the first major survey of the artist's work and the largest exhibition ever devoted to an individual video artist, organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art and curated by David A. Ross and Peter Sellars." "The book features a dynamic and visually rich selection of works from 1972 to 1996, in a presentation compiled by Kira Perov and Bill Viola, with written descriptions by the artist, and a conversation between Viola and poet/scholar Lewis Hyde on the spiritual roots and cultural traditions underlying Viola's art. There is also an overview of the artist's achievement by David A. Ross, Whitney Museum director, who has been involved with Viola's work since its beginning and, as the first museum curator of video art, has played a major role in the history and development of the field."--Jacket
