Every individual seeks satiation in different ways, each of which is informed and colored by different cultural outlooks, approaches to life, value systems, and top-down global consumer culture. While some people accept their deficient selves, work up the motivation to fight hard, or transform that into energy for self-observation and understanding others, still other people offset spiritual insufficiency with capitalist consumer age material forms, or means of fleeting instant gratification. Asking the contemporary Asian question 'Have you eaten yet?', this exhibition presents the self-awareness of Asian societies undergoing rapid change, as well as their physical pursuit and differing interpretations of 'satiation'.
