BILL VIOLA EXHIBITION
Grand Palais, Paris 20142 A Portrait in Light and Heat 1 A PORTRAIT IN LIGHT AND HEAT
UNDULATING IMAGES

Gently flickering blue lights float towards me as I move into a dark room
with a bench placed at a comfortable distance from a screen suspended on the wall.
As I sit down, I shift into a place where time, space and perception undulate seamlessly. The slowly moving image is of a desert,
whose light and heat create suggestions of hallucinatory images – mirages –
that give me a layered perception of the desert’s reality.
The images enter into a slow-motion dialogue with my life.
Disparate memories and the undulating lights in front of me
meet in an abstract sea of peace.
