Bill Viola - Grand Palais- Paris

What looks to be an extensive retrospective of Bill Viola's meditative, stately video pieces is currently installed in the appropriately portentous surroundings of Paris's Grand Palais. Over the last few decades the artist's bleakly spiritual meditations on mortality and the eternal have become freighted with disappointing levels of doctrinal ornament  greatly diminishing both their appeal and their previous, poised universality. That said, the ingenuity with which he conceives visions of the sublime and the profound is undeniable. To see so many of his works under one roof can only be hugely fascinating.
