Monument video mapping

Centuloises Legends
The Video Mapping Festival returns to Saint-Riquier for the European Heritage Days, and invites you to (re)discover the mapping presented in 2018, 2019 and 2022 on the sumptuous gothic facade of the Abbey.
3 creations that will immerse you into the history of the Royal Abbey: a legendary tale about its origins, a dreamlike mapping that will reveal the secret of the illuminators, and a visual creation with varied aesthetics to reflect the many faces of this emblematic monument.


Ad matrem natura (2018)
This video mapping is based on the history of Saint-Riquier Abbey and the legend that surrounds it. A king obtains supernatural powers by drinking water from a magical spring. He unleashes fantastic phenomena that restore the facade of the building, which until now has been left dilapidated and abandoned. Unfortunately, the Normans and soldiers from the feudal war invade, ransack the superb building and set it on fire. The structure falls into ruin and nature reclaims its rights.

► The Secret of illuminators (2019)
A young monk fascinated by the work of the abbey’s copyists dives into a magical book that teaches him the techniques of illumination. He learns how to make ink with walnut stain, how to gild with gold leaf and how to make colours with binders and pigments. This colourful, historical video mapping offers a dreamlike journey that will amaze young and old alike.
