Inverted Birth


BillViola(USA)


A series of violent transformations underpin artist Bill Viola’s exploration of existence through cyclic renewal. Witness five stages of human awakening, punctuated by a purifying climax.

At once crushing, cleansing and restorative, Inverted Birth traces Viola’s continuing fascination with the relationship between life and death. Through progressively intense imagery, he charts the ebbing ties that trace the path of a soul.
