Dominique Goblet’s selection for her storefront.
Wind, speed, sound. When comics become noise. Unclassifiable, incomparable.
“On a sort of conveyor belt that serves as a stage, the most heterogeneous objects, the most grotesque assemblages and acrobatics performed by disturbing costumed characters are paraded. Below the stage, in spite of the physical aggression to which they are constantly subjected, the audience shows a growing fervour, an excitement that soon borders on mystical ecstasy.
Plaza is a frenetic carnival procession that never lets up, never lets up. Plaza is a Dionysian mechanical feast, a grandiose spectacle that celebrates the origins of the universe, animism, gods, manufactured objects, devotion, the celebration itself, totalitarianism and the fourth dimension.
Plaza is a visual phantasmagoria half hidden behind the heavy onomatopoeia of its tumult. Plaza is a ceremony dedicated to movement, to the dynamics of form and fantasy, to chaos and creation. Plaza is a new and joyful manifesto by Yokoyama for free comics.”
