Interview with Gerald Malanga

Andy Warhol, The Kiss (Bela Lugosi) 1963. Silkscreen ink on paper, 30” X 40”

Interview with Gerald Malanga

“Andy’s ironic way of separating
himself from the immediate reality
of a violent event with an equally
violent yet fictive cinematic tableau
vivant framed as a publicity shot?”
—Gerald Malanga, Archiving Warhol

It's allthat remains
Decades ago nowseem non-existent
A fiction—taking place
Film decadesrestlessly over time
The background—now black mostly
Truth  no longer24 frames per second
And nobodyremembers
A face slowly flickersand fades
