Running alongside the Robots exhibition, 'The Last Supper' by kinetic artist and sculptor Giles Walker is a 13 minute robotic performance.
Twelve figures sit around a large table drinking and smoking. On the table bird-headed creatures move about, and at the centre a child stands in front of a cross. The twelve figures discuss their views on sin, forgiveness, guilt and judgement as music plays and the ‘last supper’ requests of death-row inmates are read.
Taking over a year to create and built from an old CPR dummy, mannequins, bird skulls and electric motors, Giles Walker’s atmospheric installation follows a long tradition of artworks that use lifelike machines to explore human identity and morality.
Warning: contains strong language and adult themes unsuitable for children under 15
