Kimsooja, God’s Lantern
A film by Gilles Coudert & Damien Faure
(52 min. / 2022)


Since its construction, numerous artists have been commissioned to create stained-glass windows for the Metz Cathedral, whose luminous expanse of colored glass inspired the nickname “God’s Lantern”. To celebrate the cathedral’s 800th anniversary, the Korean artist Kimsooja proposed a new work in a dialogue between contemporary art and cultural heritage and between Eastern and Western thought. This film tells the story of this incredible historical, human, spiritual and artistic adventure.

Invited to Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Kimsooja installed the sculpture “A Needle Woman – Galaxy was a Memory, Earth is a Souvenir” in the park and invested the chapel of the estate with a mirror device combined with diffracting films on the openings. Exhibition curator Clare Lilley and artist Kimsooja discuss the context and challenges of these works.
