Time Out says

Bill Viola (New York, 1951) is one of the most notable and renowned video artists on the international scene. In his work, Viola addresses universal themes such as birth, death, pain, grief, redemption and the passing of time. This exhibition offers an extensive survey of the career of this artist, who has evolved in tandem with the advances in video technology over the last 40 years. The selection of works includes major pieces from Viola’s early days, such as 'The Reflecting Pool' (1977-1979), to more recent creations, among them 'Martyrs (Earth, Air, Fire, Water)', commissioned by St. Paul’s Cathedral in London and inaugurated in 2014.
