KiyaKiya

KONDOH Akino

Animated short film [Japan]

The title of this work, KiyaKiya, derives from an old Japanese expression that the artist discovered in an essay, “On Childhood Experiences,” in SHIBUSAWA Tatsuhiko’s book Introduction to a Collection of Girls. The expression describes a sense of “inexplicably nostalgic anxiety” or a kind of dejavu. The film sets out to examine this feeling.
