The Last Supper is a new sculptural installation by Ken + Julia Yonetani, whose diverse practice encompasses sculpture and installation, video and performance. Environmental issues are central to their works which often use materials such as sugar, salt, and Uranium glass that directly relate to specific environmental concerns. Created during a four month residency at Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Arts Centre in Gymea, New South Wales, The Last Supper is a nine metre long banquet table sculpted entirely from more than one tonne of Murray River salt. The work points to concerns arising from increasing salinity levels in Australia and unsustainable agricultural practices.

About Redland Art Gallery
Redland Art Gallery was officially opened in 2003 and is dedicated to the memory of Eddie Santaguiliana, a former Mayor of the Shire. The gallery is located in Redland City, east of Brisbane, an area that covers 537 square kilometres consisting of mainland and islands. Redland Art Gallery serves a population of 131,000 in a region of bayside suburbs, hinterland areas and islands scattered throughout Moreton Bay.
Redland Art Gallery’s exhibitions and events feature local, Queensland, nationally and internationally recognised artists.
The exhibition program is showcased in six exhibition spaces over two locations at Cleveland and Capalaba. Gallery programs extend to island and mainland locations. The gallery’s policy is to support and encourage access, diversity and opportunity; to create a deeper sense of identity and place; and to acknowledge the region’s significant Indigenous culture and heritage.
