EXHIBITION AND PERFORMANCE, AUGUST 2016
According to myth a Jamboy was a character introduced in the 1800-century’s colonial areas as a central part of leisure culture. When the gentry went to play golf, native young men covered in jam would follow the golfers on a distance of 20-30 meters. The Jamboys would attract flies and bees to ensure a pleasurable golfing experience.
This exhibition created an pop-up-store and booking office that is leasing out Jamboys. The exhibition is investigating the fragmented myth-making of the Jamboy and interpret and reenact the myth through exploring the function and demand of a Jamboy in modern society.
The exhibition put forward a discussion on themes as social hierchies and ethics connected to the contemporary leisure and entertainment consumption.
