biLL Vi­oLA’s otH­ER­WoRLd

VOGUE Hommes International (English) - - DON’T MISS -

Un­der its vast glass canopy, the Grand Palais stages the largest ret­ro­spec­tive ever in Paris of the bril­liant Bill Vi­ola, the Amer­i­can video artist whose im­mer­sive in­stal­la­tions see bod­ies fall end­lessly into the aquatic night or con­sumed by flames. His world beyond is the same am­ni­otic whirlpool ex­plored by Lynch in his films, or by the ex­per­i­men­tal block­buster, Grav­ity. Five decades of hyp­notic in­ven­tion are vis­ited in some twenty pieces, from The Re­flect­ing Pool ( 1977 ) to The Dream­ers ( 2013 ). A neu­ronal ex­plo­sion of mind­bend­ing mi­rages. 5th March to 21st July at the Grand Palais ( Paris ).
