Bill Viola Installation At Auckland Castle Explores Earth Air Fire And Water.
A new Bill Viola exhibition in Auckland Castle, County Durham will examine the meaning and representation of belief from prehistory to the present day. This will be the first in a series of reflections on the meaning of faith located within the sacred space of St. Peter’s Chapel, offering the public an intimate experience of Viola’s work. The exhibition marks a significant return for Viola to the North East of England. His long association with the region traces back to his seminal work The Messenger, which premiered in Durham Cathedral in 1996. The exhibition will be followed by a major solo exhibition of Viola’s work at Yorkshire Sculpture Park in October 2015.
