Faux-hum, bobooooooring

bohemian embarassment
This month, the frequently delightful Fly Gallery is even more responsive than usual to its immediate environment, with this poster and video installation by Michael Toke.
Timed to chafe against the impending opening of a certain condo sales centre, “Bohemian Embarassment” succinctly sums up the feeling that overcomes most locals when they chance to walk by its towering inspiration across the street.
Check it out in the window at 1172 Queen W. until August 31 or hurry over to www.bohemianembarrassment.ca to watch Queen West’s bourgeoise giantess yawn, fidget and drink straight from the bottle of self-loathing and boredom in this hilariously detailed parody.
