PAINTING WITH THE LIGHT AND INCLUDING THE NATURE...
Those translucent “ stained glass “ monumental tapestries and "oculus" have been specifically created for their placement in the numerous abbatial windows and the choir.
Those 17 textile works of art , made of Eggshell and flowers of the abbey gathered last summer and preserved until their inclusion, are in-between paintings and non woven art tapestries. Playing with the light such as "stained slass" , they offer various visions according to the moment of the day, sun, clouds and wind... A sense of spirituality emerges through their interaction with the architecture, the nature and the birds song.
