Bill Viola. Ocean Without a Shore
This piece from the internationally renowned pioneer in video art lands in Spain for the first time and has been installed defitively in PLANTA, making it the first permanent installation of this innovative project from Sorigué
The work is installed inside a completely renovated building. The interior space that houses the installation has been built with materials from the Sorigué gravel pit, with an innovative System based on the circular economy.
The artist said “Ocean Without a Shore deals with the presence of the dead in our lives. In a dark room, the three altars on which the screens are placed become portals for the passage of dead to and from our world”
To recreate the work, a specific room has been built to accommodate it. This structure is the result of research project developed between Sorigué and the FETDETERRA architecture study, under criteria of sustainability, innovation and circular economy.
