CLIENT: PALAZZO BONPARTE
05 MARCH TO 26 JUNE 2022
The exhibition “Icons of Light” at Palazzo Bonaparte in Rome is dedicated to Bill Viola. Curated by Viola’s wife Kira Perov, the exhibition features 10 works, including well-known works such as “Ascension” (2000) and the famous “Water Portraits” (2015). Viola’s works explore themes of life and death, incorporating contrasts between Eastern and Western cultures. The exhibition serves as a retrospective and offers a glimpse into Viola’s artistic journey over the past four decades, with video installations and projections depicting the evolution of video art. The exhibition creates an immersive and introspective atmosphere reminiscent of intimate spaces or sacred shrines, inviting visitors to make a deep visual and spiritual connection with the artworks.
The museum has commissioned 235 Media for the technical realization of all installations.
