Forty years after Federico Fellini’s polemic film interpretation of Satyricon (1969) by the Roman writer Gaius Petronius Arbiter, AES+F also revisits this classical literary work in their piece The Feast of Trimalchio (2009). This video installation is based on Cena Trimalchionis, a section in ‘Satyricon’ in which the freedman Trimalchio takes centre stage and who went down in history as the epitome of opulence, luxury and unbridled pleasure. Trimalchio thus embodies Vanitas: human pleasures are finite, just like human existence itself.
