Konnie Tiki

Juxtaposing the art forms of non-Western cultures with Western kitsch and pop culture themes is both exciting and illuminating, offering new perspectives on how art reflects the collision of cultures in a borderless world.

In Konnie Tiki a tiki, a Polynesian form, is reprocessed into kitsch while simultaneously an American kitsch archetype, the harridan, is recycled into tiki form. The symbols fuse, but remain distinct.
