“The Last Supper” is a contemporary
take on the age old Christian iconic image of the last supper of
Jesus-Christ involving the controversial icon of the Statue of Liberty.
This version though takes more of it’s inspiration from Buñuel’s
1961 film “Viridiana”. The dinner in this case joins
an unlikely cast of characters invited primarily for their roles
in the erosion of civil liberties, whether it be through outright
political or military demagoguery, or cultural, or economic imperialism.
The two artists will be filmed as the twelve guests and shown gorging
on what is already the body in repose of
Miss Liberty. This installation is a reflection of the precarious
state of post-September 11 civil liberties and how world wide events
have created an environment where increasingly conservative governments
place more restrictions on their civilian populations.
