Edition No. 18
"big banner bag", 2002
With GOING FORTH BY DAY the American video artist Bill Viola describes in a five-part video projection a cycle of birth, death, and rebirth. The installation was commissioned for the space of Deutsche Guggenheim and shown for the first time. It is completed by an elaborate exhibition catalogue, conceived and designed by the artist and his wife Kira Perov.
The Edition No. 18 combines the catalogue with a shoulder bag, sewed of the advertising big banner for the exhibition with the main picture of the fifth video sequence. Each bag is an accidental cut out and therefore refers - as a daily companion - to the touching overall picture of the resurrection scene.
Catalogue GOING FORTH BY DAY in should bag of advertising banner, approx. 35 x 30 cm.
