How many times are we seized, in a corner of a church, by an intriguing object, a mysterious symbol or a grimaceous face? Sometimes it is a ray of light, a strange arrangement or a contrasting artistic creation that surprises us. The unusual can be discovered in many religious buildings, past and present. The questions that these unexpected structures, traditions or settings raise in us, not always easy to interpret, lead us into fascinating explorations.
This travelling exhibition, designed by the association Eglises Ouvertes, brings together 56 winning photographs from "The Unusual in Religious Buildings" photo competition organised in 2018. The photographs selected testify to the curious, mystical, fantastic look... and the offbeat humour of many photographers, amateurs or professionals. A beautiful tool to invite faithful and visitors to let themselves be challenged by the mysteries of St.-Michel church.
