Bill Viola: Venice Biennale 2007

The artist presented Ocean Without a Shore at the Venice Biennale 2007

Bill Viola's video installation, Ocean Without a Shore, was presented in the atmospheric setting of the church of San Gallo, Venice.

Monitors positioned on three stone altars in the church showed a succession of individuals slowly approaching out of darkness and moving into the light, as if encountered at the intersection between death and life. Viola talks about his artistic intentions and the technical challenges of the piece.
