BILL VIOLA WITH “THE PASSING“, 1991
Black-and-white, Mono Sound
Duration: June 08, 2019 – July 14, 2019
Opening on June 08, 2019 at 2.00 pm
The Passing is a personal response to the spiritual extremes of birth and death in the family. Black-and-white nocturnal imagery and underwater scenes depict a twilight world hovering on the borders of human perception and consciousness, where the multiple lives of the mind-memory, reality, and vision-merge.
Considered by many to be one of Viola's most important and accessible works, The Passing speaks eloquently to human experience at its most profound, it is a meditation on the passage of generations. This one-hour video is a land-mark of twentieth-century visual narrative as well as an expression of spirituality that is both deeply personal and universally understood.
In memory of Wynne Lee Viola
Created and directed by Bill Viola
