Pandemonia attends a soiree

Pandemonia arrives at a secrete location in her trade mark yellow inflatable hair green dress & matching clutch bag.

Ushered through the magnificent marble lobby she enters, what must be one of the most grandiose of Londons apartments.

Picasso's and Takashi Murakami sculptures literally littered the walls. In the centre of the room on a marble table, the latest Karen K shoe collection. The girls were all literally dripping with
de Grisogono fine jewellery.

Pandemonia sips Angel Champagne with Shoe designer, Karen K. “Its simply divine! This must be the best Champagne in the world.” Pandemonia was reported to say.

“You know it took a year to design the base alone.” Karen explains, as she shows Pandemonia her new limited edition shoe collection.

Spying a red sofa, the girls sit down and rest their feet. Pandemonia chats about her fourthcoming sculpture show and drinks Champagne with Nora Voon and Daria Piasecka. “Could those be Noda Design cushions?” Pandemonia askes?

A model manages to hang on to her dazzling array of de Grisogono fine jewellery. Later on Pandemonia was heard to have said. “If only my gloves were more nimble. After all, aren't Diamonds a girls best friend?”

Snapped at the fountainhead with Andy O. Could this be the one? Pandemonia slips from his clutches and disappears off into the night. Rubber can be oh so slippery.

Who is Pandemonia?!?
Postmodern; Post-Pop; Pandemonia is a living and breathing artist’s impression of the female form.


Pandemonia is a very tall, very plastic, very ironic piece of art. Covered head-to-toe in Latex, the shiny beauty queen is the epitome of a public obsession with surfaces. Pandemonia boasts several show-stopping creations, including the “Dizzy Blonde”, a royal blue long sleeved dress, polka dotted face and bouncy inflatable blonde locks. Each art work is a simulacrum, accessorised with red lips, blue eye shadow, a plastic complexion and a lightweight inflatable clutch bag. Not to mention her killer body, which is as impossibly perfect as Barbie herself.

Pandemonia was interviewed by Holly Shackleton in The Flesh and Blood Issue of i-D last year, explaining, “I have to express myself. Questioning contemporary culture and advertising, reworking modern myths, visually challenging my audience (or whoever I come into contact with) and creating a state of awareness”. Far from just a novelty act, the artist has hopes of winning the Turner Prize, and last year was invited to London Fashion Week, exhibited herself at the Vyner Street Gallery opening and the Tracey Emin exhibition at The White Cube. Next September, Pandemonia will be exhibiting a Pop-sculpture exhibition at the Aubin Gallery to coincide with Frieze 2011.

There are many comparisons to be made in terms of philosophy between artist Pandemonia, philosopher Jean Baudrillard and Pop-King Andy Warhol. Warhol too was fascinated by the shiny surface, insisting his art had no deeper meaning. Pandemonia describes herself as “packaging artificiality and lack of content”, in the same way perhaps as Warhol’s Campbell Soup cans. Both are indicative of a consumerist society, both are icons of modern art and advocates of the Pop genre. Baudrillard’s theory of the ‘Procession of Simulacra’ argues that everything in modern society is a representation (or simulacrum) of something else, so that because things are so endlessly representated and re-represented, the final outcome is devoid of authenticity and meaning and enters into a state of hyper-reality, where Pandemonia places herself. Pandeomia is a larger-than-life reminder of ourselves, and is an exaggerated mirror of 21st century society and 21st century ideals.

Watch Pandemonia at the hairdressers reading i-D’s feature, filmed for Channel 4′s Seven Days reality TV show. The film is a good example of Pandemonia’s philosophy, as 3D Pandemonia looks at 2D Pandemonia in the magazine, whilst being filmed, and filmed again by C4 in an everything watches everything scenario.

Pandemonia at the Children of Vision hairdressers

Retox Magazine and many onlookers in Portobello had a spoonful of entertainment as Pandemonia, along with her dog Snowy, rocked up to the Children of Vision hair salon to get her vanity fix.

Pandemonia got made up and polished up by John who runs the quirky Children of Vision hairdressers on Portobello Road, and Channel 4 dug into Pandemonia’s personality fun bags as they filmed for the well-known Channel 4 TV series ‘Seven Days’ – the TV programme that follows people living and working in Notting Hill.

Pandemonia goes to the hair dressers



Pandemonia goes to the Hairdressers (rough edit)

Dropping in on Channel 4's reality show "Seven Days"., Pandemonia pops into the funky hair salon, "Children of Vision".



Stepping out of a cab in fashionable Portobello road, London, she is greeted outside "Children of Vision" by owner and hair stylist John Lee. John invites her into the hair salon and coiffures her hair.

Shot on the Seven Days set, the video is a film within a film. Pandemonia reads articles about herself published in "iD magazine" whilst being filmed by Joey Skye. Joey Skye is in turn being filmed by the C4 Seven Days crew. Channel 4 is being photographed by Retox magazine who themselves are unknowingly been photographed by the public.
