Bill Viola's "A Phrase from "Illumination" Available at S[EDITION]

"A Phrase from Illumination" (2011) by video artist Bill Viola
The image sequence for "A Phrase from Illumination is a meditation on water and light, two elements that Bill Viola has used extensively in his work. On September 8, Bill Viola inaugurates Mary, the second of two moving-image artworks installed at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. Mary is presented in the North Quire Aisle alongside Martyrs (Earth, Air, Fire, Water) in the South Quire Aisle. The works are the first of their kind to be permanently installed in a UK cathedral.
