Tablets of Chanteroels

Zhou Jinde – The apographies

While accuracy never involves beauty, “beauty” in itself can only exists when in connexion with the “accurate”.

In order to create the stained glass of the Puits d’Ambroise Chapel, Zhou Jinde sought inspiration in the tablets of Chanteroels. Firstly, he used a radiography system that he calls “apography”. Then, with the help of the Photonic systems laboratory of the Louis Pasteur University in Strasbourg and the high technicity of an French industrial, he transposed the “sketches” on thin glass sheets that were vacuumed-packed.
