  • Pam at Harper's Bazaar editorial with Vivienne Westwood

pandemonia also wears Melissa

Anywhere she goes, Pandemonia is a magnet for the eyes and camera flashes. Her spetacular look under a mysterious plastic figure has become the buzz of the moment at fashion magazines, design and art publications worldwide.

Since she went to our London pop up store, Pam, as she is also called, have been seen here and there wearing Melissa shoes. Recently, she was all glammed up at a chinese Harper’s Bazaar editorial wearing Melissa Peace. In the same editorial she was posing with our greatest diva and partner Vivienne Westwood.

Intrigued and fascinated by her figure, we had a little virtual chat with this plastic lady. Check it out.


Melissa – Tell us who you are.
Pandemonia –
I am a Post Pop Artist, meaning I interact with popular culture unlike Pop Art that celebrates it.

Melissa – We are still curious, tell us more?
Pandemonia –
Instead of creating a painting or a sculpture I constructed a celebrity to mirror society. When I go to social events I go to show my work in its natural “celebrity” environment.

Melissa – Why is this character so intriguing and mysterious? Is there a motif behind this plastic costume?
Pandemonia –
I think people find her interesting because she touches upon the Zeitgeist. Pandemonia is a multimedia Art work. Celebrity, Fame, Identity, social media is the current landscape.
Pandemonia was designed to be shown in the media. She is a story in herself, mysteries make best sellers. Her image is built in the lines of a logo, she reproduces well.
She is assembled out of modern ideals, forever young, shiny new and thin. The focus is on the packaging and not the content. Her hand bags for instance contain only air.
People relate to Pandemonia on different levels.

Melissa – How did you come up with this name?
Pandemonia –
I chose Pandemonia because is means chaos, excitement, hysteria. In Milton's “Paradise Lost” Pandemonium is the golden place built by Mammon. Everything that glitters is not gold. Pandemonia is a good name in our era.

Melissa – What effect you want to cause with your costume?
Pandemonia –
I am weaving a popular myth. Through my photographed image my ideas are travelling around the world. My work now gets exhibited in the very same glossy magazines I get my inspiration from. These magazines are also providing a tailor made audience for my work.
As an artist I can only offer insights and observations. The viewer joins the dots.

Melissa – Who makes your clothes and hair style? We just love that!
Pandemonia –
I make every thing. It’s so nice to be appreciated, thank you.

Melissa – When did you meet Melissa shoes, do you already have any favorites?
Pandemonia –
I met Melissa shoes this summer at the opening of their London Covent Garden Pop up Shop. I really like their Vivienne Westwood Anglomania Sky Scraper heels. They are so classic!

Melissa – What's under the rainbow for Pandemonia?
Pandemonia –
I am working on a Print Exhibition. Next year I'll exhibit my latest series of Fine Art Silkscreen prints.

Melissa – Have you been to Brazil? Any plans on crashing a party here?
Pandemonia –
Yes I have been to Brazil. Many years ago I had an exhibition in Sao Paulo.
Brazil is a little far to “crash”, but with the right invite...

Melissa – What would you wear for a trip to Brazil?
Pandemonia –
It would have to be something ecological which is also the countries greatest export. Amazonian Rubber!

Well, we hope this visit to happen soon! If you want to know more about Pam, visit her blog.
