KATRINA DEL MAR PRESS

“Katrina Del Mar has been active in underground film, photography and erotic fiction for two decades, and her vision is as transcendent as it is transgressive. In her first major solo gallery exhibition in New York at the always adventurous alternative space Participant Inc. through February 17, Del Mar weaves her aesthetic obsessions into an expansive visual tableau.” – Carlo McCormick, Photograph Magazine

Windy City Times “New York’s famous girl gangs are rolling into Chicago. Photographer and filmmaker Katrina del Mar, who dreamed up these roving territorial gangs of punk-rock lesbians with her 1999 short film Gang Girls 2000, presents all three of her girl-gang films as a trilogy Saturday, Oct. 27, at The Nightingale Theater, 1084 N. Milwaukee Ave.

Gang Girls 2000 (1999), Surf Gang (2005) and Hell On Wheels: Gang Girls Forever (2010) are each roughly 30-minute B-movie exploitation-style films centered on fictional girl gangs (e.g. the Glitter Girls, the Rockaway Ruffnecks, the Outcasts, etc.) at war with each other that talk trash, rumble and make out.

del Mar describes herself a “feminist guerilla filmmaker” who has been inspired by the work of cartoonist Lynda Barry, filmmaker John Waters and punk rocker/artist Kembra Pfahler. The Girl Gang Trilogy has played to international audiences in Australia and throughout Europe.”

“…her photos are unique because of what she brings to the shoot – an uncanny ability to capture a moment and make it look beautiful, no matter what the subject matter” – Carbon 14
“Photogenic local celebrities filling up frames with unique personality is nothing unusual, but here they exude an intimate chemistry that only del Mar seems to draw out” -Lola Rephann, NYPress

TIME OUT New York “Photographer Katrina del Mar delves into genuine family values. While these folks may not be bound by blood, their interdependence is no less strong.”

GANG GIRLS 2000 PRESS

“This movie has sexy chicks, campiness to spare and a rockin’ soundtrack. First-time filmmaker Katrina Del Mar has put together a really fun, energized little movie that takes its low budget constraints and turns them into strengths. The film looks (and sounds) gritty, which suits the material perfectly. And with a cast that includes Runaways cofounder Kari Krome and Kembra Pfahler of the Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black–”Gang Girls 2000″ is everything you could want in an indie flick and more.

“…Far more fun was East Village photographer Katrina del Mar’s S-8 to video short GANG GIRLS 2000, a vivid, sexy and pretty witty account of the causes and effects of a Coney Island grrrl rumble.” – Peter Hall, New York Film & Video Monitor

“…powerful” – Chicago Reader

“…a genius movie” -Dany Johnson, Dyxploitation

“It appears Ms. Del Mar is the lesbian stepchild of Kenneth Anger.” – Aaron Krach, LGNY Film

“…IHR K—NIGIN BITCH SEID DIE TOUGHSTE HIER noch ein ABER DIE OLLE, DIE DA DRAUSSEN GERADE DURCH EUER GEBIET LUFT, IST NOCH TAUSENDMAL BITCHIGER ALS IHR bereit h?lt, ist mal sauber schluss mit lustig…”-Real Music (Germany)

“… it is barely possible to describe The Soft Toy Department’s sense of synchronicity a week later in encountering the mythic Kembra Pfahler in person — at the Greenwich Village nightclub Life, to witness the unveiling of photo phenom Katrina del Mar’s latest exhibit “American Toughie”. Here, del Mar’s probing lens and lovingly manipulated prints pay unflinching homage to the polymorphic preversity of today’s rough-trade urban youth.” -Mark Kramer, BME “Soft Toy Department”

PAPER Magazine XXX Zine  “Dr. Ducky DooLittle and Katrina del Mar are back with one of their sauciest books to date. “Who Touched My Monkey?” is a tale of heart wringing deceit, steamy wheelchair bondage, spankable ruffled panties and stolen sock monkeys.”
