As part of Marc Lohner's Acheiropoiètes installation at Saint-Eustache church, the artist presents a musical performance for symphony organ, choir organ, clay horns and "elechtonic" bell.
Acheiropoiètes, a Greek term meaning "not made by the hand of man", is a project that originated in the heart of Saint-Eustache, as close as possible to the marks that time has etched into the architecture. In the same way, Lumen was born in this very church: the spiritual radiance, the spatial dimension and the way in which light diffuses have inspired its composition.

Marc Lohner was born in 1993 in Izmir, Turkey. He entered the Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2016, after obtaining a degree in film and audiovisual studies at the Université de Paris 3 Sorbonne Nouvelle. During his studies, he spent seven months on exchange in the sculpture department of the Musashino University of the Arts in Tokyo. In 2023, he graduated from the Beaux-Arts de Paris (DNSAP) with honours. Rooted in collective mythological history, his work involves defining new tools for accessing different planes of reality.
