Following successful shows in both London and Los Angeles, Giles Walker has
chosen Cambridge as the next city in which to exhibit his Last Supper. A year in
the making this remarkable work is a fully animated sculpture consisting of thirteen
mechanical figures who interact around a table. Simultaneously humorous and
disturbing The Last Supper quickly surpasses the audience’s initial interest in the
robotic elements of the piece and draws us into the questions it poses concerning
religious education and the eternal power struggle for the moral high ground.
Opening in July Giles is collaborating with three local partners who all share a
community driven agenda.
Jimmy’s Cambridge is the only emergency accommodation provider for the
homeless in Cambridge.
Changing Spaces is an artist run project negotiating empty premises as project and
exhibition spaces for contemporary visual art.
Origin8 is an events and corporate caterer committed to sourcing the very best in
produce from the Anglian area and providing superb food in a local, eco-friendly
and sustainable way.
The Last Supper’s first showing in Cambridge will include an invitation to the
homeless community to come and see the work and share a feast provided by
Origin8, in a location hosted by Changing Spaces, and with invaluable support
from Jimmy’s. In an atmosphere of austerity where those struggling to find a
foothold in society are often demonised there has never been a more important
time to bring together community minded organisations determined to make a
