High Gear

With HIGH GEAR, Kidows Kim begins the third chapter of his intimate cosmogony depicted in his “Dictionary of Fantastic Creatures”. In this solo performed by Kazuki Fujita, he excavates alternative manga imagery evoking relationships with power, norms and domination.

Without ever reproducing them, a figure confusedly embodies the images collected by oscillating between horror, dark fantasy and post-apocalyptic. In these worlds tinged with patriarchy, imperialism and the promotion of hyper-productivity, it seeks to divert the codes and free herself from their toxicity. The body is smothered by a sculpture of metal and dilapidated fabrics, it evolves as best it can in the ashes of saturated images and industrial noises.

HIGH GEAR explores the intervals between the panels in an abrupt dramaturgy where excess hybridizes with reverie.
