Bill Viola and his presences from the other world
Bill Viola and his presences from the other world Ocean without a Shore is the title of the new project by Bill Viola who, until 24 November, will be present in the fascinating setting of the San Gallo church, near Saint Mark's Square.

Ethereal, unexpected images of dead people appear through three screens skilfully located in the architectonic spaces of this 15th century building where the three stone altars are transformed into ideal portals of access and linkage between two worlds: that of the living and that of the dead.
An interesting, absorbing experience which, through sounds, images and suggestive atmospheres, makes possible a visual and emotional contact with an unknown, invisible world, beyond the tomb, revealing how this acts and interacts with our lives.
