This has come across my desk and seems worthwhile.

Putting on a Show at Honkytonks

Photography by Sophie Penkethman-Young, Matthew Roll and Janis Lejins
People Objects Fetish
May 30 – June 13
Opening 7pm, May 20

Three students from the ANU School of Art Photomedia department will combine their powers to adorn the walls of Garema Place Bar, Honkytonks.

Exhibitor, Sophie Penkethman Young says:
I’m doing this because I hate myself and I want more stress in my life, especially at assessment time.

Of the theme, People Objects Fetish, she says:
Sex sells. So I decided if I was going to put on an exhibition and make some money, it should be about sex. The title, “Putting on a Show at Honkytonks” also relates to fetish, voyeurism and exhibitionism.

Of the group exhibiting, she says:
We’ve been going to art school together and we hang out a lot and we all get drunk.

Why exhibit at Honkytonks?
Because they asked me. I was at the ANU Bar when they called. I realized that I couldn’t possibly get enough work together in their time frame. I was sitting next to Janis so I asked him if he’d like to exhibit with me. Then, ‘cause I’m inseparable from Matt, I asked him too.

Also, we have similar enough styles that they can fit together. We’re each doing a wall with four works.

Milkman – I think you’ve been watching to much shemale p*rn. It’s warped your mind.

Too much shemale pron? More like NOT ENOUGH!

And no, that’s not why the girls call me Milkman.

Daddy?

Yes son, it’s me.

Mum says if you ever show your face around here, you owe us half a pack of Winnie Blues and a bottle of milk.

Looks like a teenage boy in a wig, judging by the wide hands and hairy arms.

guess we’ll all have to get along in person to see it then, JB!

is this some sort of viral marketing ploy by honkytonks? VERY effective!!

Ben_Dover Ben_Dover 5:55 pm 23 May 12

F-w-o-o-o-a-a-r!

You’ve sold me on the idea of a visit to see this “exhibition” JB!!

Why did you crop the photo…….

    johnboy johnboy 5:10 pm 23 May 12

    With a heavy heart James_

    But it saves us trouble with readers who have very strict work environments and gives people an excellent reason to go see the exhibition!
