Bill Viola: Visitation Reformation
Uppsala Cathedral / Church of Sweden
Exhibition graphics, campaign, invitation and publication for the exhibition Bill Viola: Visitation Reformation at Uppsala Cathedral.
Bill Viola is an acclaimed American artist working with film and video installations. His works focus on human existence such as birth, death and aspects of consciousness. His work is represented throughout the world. The exhibition Bill Viola: Visitation Reformation was part of the celebration of 500 Years of Reformation. We made the exhibition graphics, campaign, invitation and publication.
Getting a chance to work closely with the team in Stockholm and LA made this a very exclusive experience.
We divided the content into parts representing each installation. Each section starts with a single page of matte, blue or grey paper with screen printed type matching the paper colours. On the cover, we used shiny hot foil printing in contrast to the matte paper. The cathedral in gothic style, dating from the 13th century is very characteristic, something we wanted to be present in the catalogue. We took photos of the interior and reflected them to add a spatial and sacred feeling.
Linda Wallenberg curated the exhibition in collaboration with Kristin Windolf Granberg and Kira Perov, executive director of Bill Viola Studio. HM Queen Silvia of Sweden attended the opening ceremony.
