La Pedrera offers an extensive look at the career of Bill Viola, one of the pioneers of video art. The exhibition entitled "Bill Viola Mirrors of the unseen” covers the progression of his work, which takes place at the same time as the development of video technology over the last forty years, beginning with significant works from his early days such as The Reflecting Pool (1977-1979), to more recent creations such as Martyrs (Earth, Air, Fire, Water), commissioned by St Paul's Cathedral in London, where his work has been on permanent display since 2014. Viola's projections focus on universal questions such as birth, death, pain, redemption and the passing of time. His works pave the way for the senses to channel feelings and generate particular moods.
