These travels have greatly influenced his video and sound installations; which explore human emotions and his interest in Zen Buddhism, Islamic Sufism and Christian mysticism. In 1978, Viola married Kira Perov, who is his main collaborator. Viola has received the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, in 1989, along with being awarded the Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Government in 2006.

Frankel, Bill Viola at James Cohan Gallery, ArtForum, December 2000 J. Walsch ed., Bill Viola, The Passions, Los Angeles, 2003, page 265, illustrated (another example) Y. Aznar, Bill Viola Repertorio de Pasiones/ Bill Viola: Repertoire of Passions, Espacio, Tiempo y Forma, Series VII, Historia del Arte, t.17, 2004, page 361 The American artist Bill Viola is one of the most renowned representatives of video art and has been instrumental in establishing this medium as a living form of contemporary art since the early 1970s. He addresses universal human experiences and deals intensively with the body, divergent temporal orders, spirituality and transcendence in his visually powerful works. His videos and installation-based worlds of experience are convincing in their technical precision as well as their contemplative presence and immediate emotionality. The “Union” diptych is part of a series called “The Passions”, in which Viola explores intense emotions such as suffering and ecstasy, endurance and release. Inspired by the traditional painting and sculpture of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance, he translates his motifs into powerful contemporary aesthetics. “Union” consists of two flat screens placed side by side, showing a woman and a man contorting their bodies in their struggle to reach the source of the bright light overhead. Both are in a highly emotional state, but they experience this intensity in isolation, unaware of each other. When their physical and mental exertions reach their peak, they finally experience a kind of release. Their exhausted bodies relax, and their faces are full of amazement and wonder. The video shows the couple’s actions in ultra-slow motion, which is typical of many of Viola’s works. By extending a one-minute performance to eight minutes, the artist exposes subtle nuances in the two figures’ expressions that would barely be perceptible in real time. This radical deceleration makes their emotional states seem both ephemeral and eternal, and thus a universal metaphor of human existence. In formal terms, the couple’s gestures and half-length representation are reminiscent of the inward gazes and body language of medieval devotional paintings, such as the mourning Virgin, or Jesus as Man of Sorrows. Designed to arouse compassion like these historic images, Viola’s work aims to build an internal relationship with the viewer. Furthermore, his video’s visionary poetics impressively transcend our perception of the real world.

(24 1/3 x 13¾ in.) performance d'Anika Ballent une jeune femme apparaît dans l'obscurité et s'approche doucement vers nous telle une apparition fantomatique noire et blanche. Elle s'arrête à la limite entre la vie et la mort, représentée ici par un mur d'eau, puis décide de le traverser pour passer dans la lumière. Pendant le passage, son corps se transforme et prend les couleurs de la peau et de la vie. Elle s'arre un court instant, le corps humide comme à peine né, ses yeux cherchant à entrer en contact avec les nôtres. Puis elle se détourne et retraverse le mur d'eau pour retrouver sa place dans la pénombre et l'obscurité. A young girl approaches out of the darkness and slowly moves towards us, appearing as a ghostly black and white figure. She pauses at the threshold between death and life, represented here as a wall of water, and then decides to pass through into the light. In the process, her body transforms into the full color and detail of living flesh. She remains for a short time, dripping wet as if being born, her eyes searching to make contact with us. After a short time, she turns away and walks back through the water, returning to the place of shadows and darkness.
