"Only the hunger artist is not satisfied, he is always dissatisfied."
"The artist is always in the pursuit of meaning which he only knows."
The hunger artist insists to a point which ordinary people can never understand,
this is the so-called "alienation" what Franz Kafka means ,
The director turns the protagonist to be the eccentric in front of others,
but the artist is happy with this
He takes it as one kind of honor and happiness.
Which also serves as a symbol of the essence in the creator's mind
He has no other choices
What he can do is to push himself to the endless limit on the path
His cage was put in the entrance
All the tourists will be able to see him
He deformed himself to be one kind of animal
He also reduced his living space.
Even without audiences,
He still insists on keeping hungry
But he is not sure if the "target" in his mind still exist or not
He does not really need any audiences who can appreciate his performance
Because he doesn't want the perfunctory appreciation from people who cannot understand his performance
When he say: "Why I remain hungry still, its because I can not find the food of my taste
And if I can find this food, please believe me, I will not disturb my audiences,
I will not be like you and anyone else, get myself fully full."
"The creator has shaped me in this way, I have no other way to keep alive" he said
"Therefore I must remain hungry, I must keep my belief
The hunger artist points out some idea which is
"The usual way how people live, is not suitable for me in the hands of the creator"
If I am only a simple caged animal, I may feel happy easier
It must be easier to understand the joy than to understand the hunger (the creation)
