KK Queens Survey

2005, 7:20 min, color, sound

In KK Queens Survey, Linzy appears as a New York artist/diva who submits to an outrageous telephone survey on her artistic and personal practices. ("Metaphorically speaking, how many asses have you kissed today?") Employing his signature strategy of voicing multiple characters, Linzy hilariously skewers the absurdities of the contemporary art world.

Debra Singer writes in Artforum, "Linzy's blistering lampoon of art world power dynamics typifies Linzy's trademark mixture of raunchy humor, campy theatricality, sexual intrigue and poignant social commentary." Writing in The New York Times, Holland Cotter adds, "It should be required viewing for all M.F.A. students."
