Feast III, 2023

While living in a system that prioritizes healthy and functional bodies, human beings are met with constant risk of becoming an object, a part of someone else or a byproduct of the system. Simultaneously, we are driven by the primal desire to spread our borders, to absorb object into oneself, overcome fear of flawedness and temporality of a body.
By rethinking the relationship between consumer culture and a human being, blurring the concepts of “consumer” and “commodity”, I construct a feast imitating the lifestyle characteristics of different historical periods. The off-centered hierarchy between the living and non living invites feast participants to question their own position in modernity. Do you belong on the guest list or a menu?
