Last Supper, 2020

Artist: Atelier Van Lieshout

The last supper has been an important artistic subject for two millennia, from the second-century catacombs of Rome, via Michelangelo and Da Vinci to Nitsch and Warhol. Its symbolic meaning is universally understood: a goodbye to life and the world as we know it. In Atelier Van Lieshout’s Last Supper, every apostle has his own character: lethargically hanging in a corner, sneaking away, or hiding under the table. The scene is framed by a cage-like structure that ties it together like a portable shrine but also implies restriction, either physically or mentally.
