When the Indonesian Visual Art Archive (IVAA) Yogyakarta was about to move to new office in March 2011, I was asked to make a group photograph of the people who work there by its director, Farah Wardani. She came up with the idea to appropriate the famous work by Leonardo da Vinci, The Last Supper.

The original 15th century mural painting in Milan, Italy portrayed the last supper attended by Jesus and His disciples before the crucifixion. The appropriation created in March 2011 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia was intended to portray the last activity before they move out to new office.

The photograph was made for soon-to-be-published Asia Art Archive’s “Night Book”.
