Have you ever wondered what the food would say when we are eyeing, taking pictures, or munching over them if they could talk? In the exhibition Mutual Gaze: A Feast of Pareidolia in the Metaverse, Hong Kong-based food photographer David Leung attempts to visualise the scenario by employing a photo manipulation technique he called ‘symmetrical pareidolism’ to turn appetising food pictures into portraits of beast-like creatures.
On view will be a set of 12 limited edition prints from the ‘Beasts from Feasts’ (BFF) crypto ‘food-art’ series. From typical quick bites like Siu Mai to classic gourmet dishes such as “First Cut” Char Siu, the 12 ‘beasts’ are reimagined from some iconic flavours of Hong Kong to dedicate the artist’s love towards the local food scene. Their phantasmagorical appearance prompts us to see the dish we are familiar with beyond the standard of deliciousness or delicateness.
