LAST SUPPER, FAMILY STYLE

In this installation artist Tanamya Bingham has taken her own family and depicted them with her own interpretation of Leonardo De Vinci’s iconoclast Last Super. Rather than the work representing any religious sect, this work is a personal tribute to the sacredness of family both dead and alive.

 

The twist in this work is all the people at the table, including her version of Jesus, are already dead. According to Tanmaya, Judas is present but can only be discovered by unraveling the sequence of deaths. On the other hand the people viewing the scene, both visitors and the window like paintings on the wall are alive in the literal and metaphoric sense.
