Wim Delvoye merges X-rays with stained glass to make religio-anatomical art.

You mean, X-rated X-ray Stained Glass, yes?
i see skeletal sex acts in this religious-esque stained glass. and i like it.
The body is a temple?
Indeed it is. Though after Canadian Thanksgiving mine seems to be occupying more space, must have built an addition.
We’ve got a whole installation mimicking a cathedral of these works in our museum of modern art here in the Ggrand-Duchy of Luxembourg MUDAM. Check the link:
I would dearly love to see these in person. And then start laying out blurry photographs of Elizabeth Taylor and blown-up reproductions of frames 220-228 of Zapruder’s film.
I’m not proud to admit, but when I was younger I stole a whole stack of x-rays from a medical records warehouse (they were all duplicates!).
They made lovely lamp shades. Windows blinds too. I really had fun with those things, wish I had hung onto them…
