Mythology, religion and the representation of power have manifested in all of the great works from antiquity. With Profanity Pop, Rodolfo pays tribute to specific historical works that have inspired many generations. Universal themes are once again narrated by beloved animated characters, but in the guise of the divine and with all the fragility of martyrs. Away from the paradise of happy endings, the pastel sprinkled drama takes on a vulnerability that juxtaposes subversively with situations never similarly interpreted.

The Monarchy of prejudices and taboos crumble in this story. The disenfranchised reach beyond discrimination, and in this narrative no union is sinful or suppressed.

The absorbing worlds of entertainment, fashion, and excesses, with the magic of kitsch, invite us to desecrate the seductive world of POP.

While some might find it offensive, specially the Disney people, I think its quite an accurate expression of our society.

That Cruella one cracks me up. And snow white. Oh lawdy. I definitely see it representing modern day fads and trends among other things. The contrast between the fairy tale end of Disney and the harsh reality of life is thought-provoking.

Much Love,
