Operating much like a Tupperware party, KitschInventions is a satirical installation designed to reference a domestic environment as a set for the performance and demonstration of the products under the label. Frisky Whisk and Stop Ice are interactive performative objects whose subversive functions challenge collective gender assumptions, etiquette, and domestic control. Armed with a Southern upbringing and distrust of undisputed custom, I perform and demonstrate KitschInventions, with emphasis placed on the character’s modesty and naïveté. Her oblivious demonstration of the suggestive work illustrates a stylized gender stereotype and further reinforces the absurd nature of the objects.
