Bill Viola's Latest Video Piece Explores the Mystery of Birth

Publish date:

Video artist Bill Viola's latest work Inverted Birth is now showing at New York's James Cohan gallery. The large-scale screen shows actor Norman Scott being doused with a viscous liquid--but the whole thing is shown in reverse.

Writes The Village Voice, "What's beguiling about the whole experience — other than the sheer drama of it — is how desperately the mind wants to screen it in the proper direction. We're not sure if we're looking at something moving backward or forward, and what's real and what's contrived seem to merge. That kind of bewilderment seems about right, at least in the face of mortality and the mysteries around birth and death, and Viola captures it in a single dramatic gesture."
