The Last Supper for kids

The Last Supper is a large-scale sculpture made entirely from groundwater salt, taking the form of a nine metre table laid with a variety of foodstuffs on top. While the immersive installation explores the very adult themes of consumption, luxury, vanity and mortality, it's also a great experience for children who respond well to the tactile, familiar qualities of the otherwordly treats on display.

We spent a morning with Taryn Leahy, Gallery Assistant at the Hawkesbury Regional Gallery while she and a bunch of kids explored Ken and Julia Yonetani's The Last Supper for inspiration then got messy making salty, doughy things to eat (and fly!)

The Last Supper runs at Hawkesbury until 29 March 2015.

The work will tour to five regional galleries in 2014 and 2015, with thanks to Museums & Galleries of NSW.
