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.

Before revitalisation, PMQ was built in 1951 as the Police Married Quarters. In November 2010, the HKSAR Government announced the plan to preserve the site for creative industries uses. Our major task is to transform a historical compound and develop it into a unique hub of broad appeal to serve the evolving creative industries.
