Studio Job: Installation at Kunstkerk
September 11, 2022
ACS member Studio Job has recently unveiled a new stained glass and bronze sculpture on the facade of a late 19th-century church in Dordrecht, Netherlands.

This modern take on Christian decorative art, entitled The Embrace, was created for the opening of Kunstkerk, or “Art Church”, a new art exhibition space and culture centre in a former church.


The Embrace features three curving windows, depicting religious scenes alongside various worldly images and ornamentation. The windows are elevated by four bronze turtles at the bottom of the 14-metre-high sculpture. Studio Job brings new life to the European tradition of stained glass church windows, making them best viewed from outside the church than from within.
