«2000 years have passed. Faces faded, but the light remained»

Igor Kalinauskas

The large-scale installation, which includes a series of canvas and sculptures that display the evolvement of the biblical scene in the inner space, is the author’s interpretation of the famous The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci. It was exhibited in the renown Leonardo Da Vinci National Science & Technology Museum (Milan, Italy) on March 2006, in Moscow (Russia) in 2008, Bratislava (Slovakia) in 2010, Kiev (Ukraine) in 2013, Berlin (Germany) in 2014.

At the cost of blood of God-Man we join to eternity. Time stops, and the space turns white — the symbolic colour of otherness. The Last Supper is conveyed here as restoring the integrity of human life. According to the artist’s conception, this series of paintings looks like faces of the Apostles and Christ. But after 2000 years, their faces blurred, and there was only light which the artist depicted.
At present, the viewer is joining in the atmosphere of the event that took place 2000 years ago. We see the light of the apostles, the table of The Last Supper, the printed words “One of you will betray me”, which Jesus Christ said at The Last Supper, as well as a protected artefact — the Holy Grail, and Angels on the watch.
