Chantal Hug
Kreuzweg, 1990

St Martin’s Church is home to 15 identically sized bronze reliefs which tell the story of the Via Dolorosa (also known as the Passion) in the Stations of the Cross. The depiction of the suffering of Jesus Christ in a cycle of images derives from the fact that worshippers kneel at each station. While the first relief describes the moment when Jesus is sentenced to death, the last is devoted to His resurrection. What is striking is that the image of the resurrection is the only one that sits above the others which hang in a loose grouping on two different levels. The last image also differs from the others in terms of art: in scenes 1 to 14, the depicted person appears almost fully sculpted, whilst the final Jesus figure is more sketch-like and dematerialised. Chantal Hug has dedicated her life to the Faith and is a member of a religious order. As an artist, she creates countless pictures and sculptures.
