THE FEAST simulates the inner world of patients with eating disorder . According to Freud’s personality theory, we create three roles—— the mother/seducer (id), representing the original impulse to eat; the father/regulator (super-ego), who operates as a moral conscience; the child (ego), who is both the mediator and the implementer of reality. Struggling between her id and super-ego, the child ultimately falls into a wrecking dilemma that would in the end, lead to her own downfall.
Victoria Gong is a photographer/ filmmaker based in London. She finished her BA degree at New York University, Tisch School of the Arts, in the department of Cinema Studies, and is currently pursuing her MA degree in Performance: Screen at Central Saint Martins. Her photographs and films often take place in a dark digital void that she creates — a state of limbo that detaches from reality — to capture and preserve the fundamental essence of images: synthetic immortality. Influenced mostly by expressionism and the occult, she hopes to unwrap and deconstruct absurdity in the subconscious mind, while integrating distorted and uncanny images into the beauty of classical aesthetics.
