About Humongous!

By Nanako Tsukidate

Humongous! lives through the power of its images, through the successive impressions they trigger in us, and that overwhelm us softly. There’s no border between past and present, life and death, dreams and reality. Our feet cannot hold still on this shifting soil. Aya Kawazoe captures the anxiety of insufferable living, not unlike Jean-Paul Sartre’s Nausea. 16mm film grain is not merely there for cinematic or poetic allure, but it conveys the current state of the world in CONVULSIVE beauty.
