Andy Guérif adapts the Maestà of Duccio as a tableau vivant: the tale of the Christ’s Passion in twenty-six successive panels, from the arrival in Jerusalem to the road to Emmaus.

Our take

Mel Gibson and DeMille adapted the Bible into drama, but it looked nothing like this. Marvel at the French artist-filmmaker’s stunning transformation of the screen into a multi-panel moving image interpretation of the Passion. A moving painting? Video art? Either way, it’s meant to be watched big!
