DESIGN : ALTAR / SAINT-PIERRE CHURCH

Project ordered by Archbishop of Bordeaux – Work in progress.

For this creation, Rodolphe Martinez wished sanitized, light and meditative objects. The idea was to create a triangular altar like a ship’s prow (referring to Bordeaux Port past) and symbolic of the Trinity. The altar is openwork brass cross laser cut on the sides and on the table. A lighting system allows the projection cross the ground. The light as close as possible flame candles. The altar gives the impression of a slight elevation through an opaline glass. The altar carries a glass plate to the Office. At the back of the altar, two statues (St Peter and St Paul – 15th century) on brass pedestals.

Finally, at the end of the nave, a large brass cross retro illuminated as a visual signature. The goal is to achieve a contemporary decor, simple, bright, iridescent interior accompanying liturgy and that can nimber and move the believer as the casual visitor. This device comes with a redesigned lighting. Rodolphe Martinez worked with great freedom, an open mind and complete confidence in this project. This is a rare and exciting spiritual adventure. A project in progress with the technical assistance of “L’atelier Zellium” in Bordeaux.

———

« Homme de radio, Rodolphe Martinez imagine en parallèle de sa profession, un univers photographique très intimiste, où les images s’imposent parfois comme de véritables peintures. Photographe plasticien, il déconstruit ses photos pour en faire de vrais tableaux, recomposant la matière première avec l’aide de couleurs primaires. Il utilise les techniques et les ressources de la peinture sur photo, du découpage, ou encore du collage, du polaroïd ou de la mosaïque. Son travail photographique et plastique aborde le thème des arbres et des figures figées que ce soit des mannequins, des statues ou des images issues des médias. Il aborde ainsi les thématiques du dialogue silencieux qui se noue entre le paysage urbain et les symboles, où les moindres détails trouvent leur importance. Evoluant entre peinture et photographie, il participe ainsi à une réécriture du réel sous forme de palimpseste.”
