Lions Roar : September 2009
Internationally recognized as one of today’s leading artists, Bill Viola says his videos and installations are “art for transformation, meant to serve for cultivating knowl- edge of how to be in the world, for going through life. It is useful for developing a deeper understanding, in a very personal, subjective, private way, of your own experi- ence.” His videos are short, wordless displays of archetypal dream image, emotions, cycles of time, and phases of life and death, and can be found in major museums worldwide. We have used stills from his videos frequently in the magazine. The three stills shown below (from a video loop of several minutes duration) are from a dip- tych titled “Surrender,” in a twenty-part series called “The Passions.” In a Novem- ber, 2004 interview in the Shambhala Sun, Viola said that after studying with a Zen teacher in Japan, “it began to sink in that perhaps art resided in life itself, that as a practice it derives primarily from the quality of experience, depth of thought, and devotion of the maker.” For more on Bill Viola’s work go to www.billviola.com. Surrender: three stills from two large plasma flat panel screens mounted vertically on the wall, one above the other. PHOTOSBYKIRAPEROV Bill Viola
