  • Corpus Christi
  •     Through the series « Corpus Christi », I wished to highlight the architectural aesthetic of the new places of worship and  their hymn to minimalism, which has represented a genuine creative inspiration in modern religious architecture.
    Participating in a movement initiated in the 1920s and perpetuated by great architects such as Guillaume Gillet, Gottfried Böhn and Auguste Perret, most of these churches were built in the 1950-60s.

    Scattered throughout Europe and the world, they reveal a new conception of the sacred, a representation of the divine imbued with modernity, thus triggering a debate and a rejection from some architects and members of the clergy.

      I have chosen to capture this break with centuries of architectural tradition, the choice of materials; reinforced concrete, plastic, crystal, diffusion of diaphanous or bright light, and to draw the viewer’s attention to the altar at the bottom of the picture, respecting a perfect symmetry, while the height of the building confronts our smallness to the greatness of the sacred.

     This work also insists that many unique interiors could be made for the same type of institution.
