This event has ended.

Bill Viola is a video art pioneer who has pursued the possibilities of the medium for more than 35 years. This exhibition commemorates Viola's winning of the Praemium Imperiale, a global arts prize awarded annually by the Japan Art Association, in the painting category.

On display are 7 works created between 2001 and 2008 that feature Viola's trademark sense of drama and fantasy, as well as themes of life, death, rebirth and human emotion.

The artist will be present at the closing party on the last day of the exhibition.

作品を見ていると、自分の感覚が鋭くなってゆくのが良くわかる。
日常にあるかも知れない状況や、日常ではありえない状況がモチーフになっているが、見る事で100倍は自分がパワーアップしている気がするのです。

それがこれらの作品の力かもしれないが、見る者の可能性を高めてくれるというのは素晴らしいと思うのです。

ビジュアルの世界で生きてゆきたい人は一見の価値ありです。
