CLIENT: MUSEUM LA BOVERIE
21 OCTOBER 2023 TO 28 APRIL 2024
La Boverie Museum in Liège is presenting “Sculptor of Time”, a major solo exhibition by the American artist Bill Viola.
In collaboration with Tempora and Bill Viola Studio, the museum is presenting the first Belgian exhibition of international standing to honor the work of the renowned video artist. Viola’s works are technically impressive, simultaneously grandiose and intimate, complex and surprisingly accessible, spectacular and deeply human. The sources of inspiration for his installations are diverse and rooted in Western and Eastern art traditions and various spiritual philosophies. They are imbued with a humanism with a universal character.
La Boverie presents 17 works by Bill Viola, including 5 large-scale installations. Among other things, visitors can expect to see the rarely shown works “Slowly Turning Narrative” and “Going Forth by Day” and an impressive version of the work “Fire Woman/ Tristan’s Ascension”, which is presented on an 8 m high canvas.
235 Media has produced a re-build of the 1992 work “Heaven & Earth” for this exhibition, commissioned by Bill Viola Studio,
and technically reworked the work “Slowly Turning Narrative” from 1992 (which we already rebuilt in 2017).
Furthermore, 235 Media was involved in the technical planning of the exhibition and carried out the complete technical realization.
