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.
