BBB ART (article first published : 2006-12-30)

To shake up the new year’s party at BeanBag Bohemia, Tea with Mussolini - the collage days, Bean Bag Bohemia has installed two new fun exhibits.

In the Reception Gallery there is an exhibition of work by Evette Dunn entitled The Coloured Supa Hero. The work pushes the fine art printing medium to its max through a sassy graffiti approach incorporating mixed mediums, found objects and personal texts. With the help of her “supa hero Alta. Ego”, Dunn sets out to liberate herself and others from racial stigmas associated to “colouredness”. The work uses humour to defuse and redress powerful social stereotypes.

In the Cafe Gallery is Peter Engblom’s new workThe writings on the wall. Playful photographic work which combines Engblom’s signature beauties with their lamenting brake up notes. He combines sms text and poetry scrawled behind his (oh, so lonely) muses, creating a mood known all too well with statements like "Today was a complete waist of make up".

Bean Bag Bohemia is situated in Windermere Road close to the Greyville Racecourse.
