Bill Viola: The Fall Into Paradise

A leading American artist and pioneering figure in video and the moving image, Bill Viola explores themes of transformation and transcendence from emotional, philosophical, and spiritual perspectives. The Fall Into Paradise is a digital cinema installation that renders the human experience in a dramatic wash of water, light and sound. The result is a meditation on the instance of transcendental and spiritual breakthrough, tracing Viola’s continuing search for consciousness and empirical knowledge through art. This installation marks the artwork’s first exhibition in Maine and its presentation – immediately next to the sea – promises a compelling and profound experience. The exhibition is organized by the Ogunquit Museum of American Art with the important assistance of the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and is generously supported by Cliff House Maine.
