Invited by the Canterbury Diocese to create an installation about The last 24 hours of Jesus’s Life, to mark the visit by the Archbishop of Canterbury to St Mary’s, Sellindge on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday.
A lot happens in The last 24 hours of Jesus’ life. It starts with the last supper and ends with his death. Over the evening meal Jesus breaks bread and drinks wine as a symbol of remembrance, which has become the symbolic ritual of the Christian faith. Jesus then predicts and finds each of his disciples betrayals him in one form or another, which leads him into to a series of overnight interrogations and abuse. At dawn, due to a predisposed mob, as to his guilt, he is put on trial and condemned. He is sentenced to carry a cross to his own crucifixion which cultimates that evening in his death.
A shocking similarity to present day policitical abuse of power, to resistance or opposition.
Works included: Everyone Wants to go to Heaven, but Nobody wants to Die, No-one is Perfect, The Last Supper, Would you Carry the Means to your Death and Crown of Thorns.
The event was covered by the National press for the Easter Sunday papers and featured on the front cover of the Observer Newspaper and by the BBC programme Have I Got News for You which was broadcast the following week.
