THE FEAST OF TRIMALCHIO BY AES+F AT TICK TACK
Interpretating the melancholy fiction ‘Satyricon’ by the Roman poet Petronius, The Feast of Trimalchio is the multi-media work of Russian collective AES+F. In the ancient story Trimalchio’s feast was portrayed as the ideal celebration that Trimalchio imagined for his own funeral. The AES+F’s version, appeared in Venice in 2009, reproduces these theme in a 21st century context by creating an imagined paradise set on a luxurious island resort.⠀
The Feast of Trimalchio by AES+F, selected by Domenico De Chirico, was on screen at CINEMA TICK TACK January – March 2020.
