Kasumi | 2019 | fic 13'

Artist Collective Revolta



Kasumi is derived from the will to highlight the fragile limit between love and hate in a relationship. We would like to display the collision between reason and emotions, as found in Greek Tragedies, when confronted by the array of sentiments experienced while one wants to hate the person one loves or even love the person one hates. We want to show how the absence of words is sometimes just as harsh as when words are said. Speech is not always necessary to exhibit sadness, hatred, oblivion, or despair; nor does it always need to be presented to tell a story.. We want to show the opposite of a romantic relationship when nothing is going right through their glances. We often remember the first time eyes lock, hands touch, and faces come closer, but what about the last time?
