Shall We Eat? 2016

What can you eat and what can't you? How real is the food we eat? "Shall We Eat?" is a tongue-in-cheek view on food cultures in the developed world, playing with perception/reality and the wide divide between real food for sustenance and what gets served as food on many tables. Beautifully styled and photographed non-food seduces the viewer into believing what is not. Playing games with the eyes, the installation glamorises the presentation of food and then makes it inaccessible.
First exhibited at Serendipity Arts Festival, Goa, 2016
