Kitschen Pop Queen

Ani Kalemkerian

1992, 20:00 minutes, colour, English


Kitschen Pop Queen embodies the aesthetic of the Pop Art movement of the 1960's, which depicted everything previously considered unworthy of notice let alone art: advertising, gaudy furnishings, film stars, tasteless bric-a-brac, and food packaging. The themes of glamour, death, fame, mass production and consumption are incorporated in the tape and were derived from the work of Andy Warhol.

If you ever wondered what happened to Andy Warhol, he may have been reincarnated in a cameo of this stylized pop, glamour film. A drag queen who is very creative in the kitchen, a mayonnaise factory, a beauty contest and the murder of Miss Montreal by Miss Toronto, all add up to a surreal blend of camp and utter vindictiveness. The stuff legends are made of.
