Bill Viola: The Moving Portrait
To summarize Viola’s enticing media exhibit in one word: mesmerizing. This is the Portrait Gallery’s first exhibition comprised entirely of media art, but it goes further – the works observe how the whole genre of portraiture is evolving. ‘Moving portraits’ are an entirely new realm, and Viola seamlessly navigates their waters. In dark silent rooms, his creations play on repeat and absorb the viewer into the piece. He merges intimate human experiences with technology, as their boundaries are increasingly blurred.
