Bfn to be transformed into ‘Selfie World’

Tshepang Jiane, one of the Selfie World visual artists whose talents were showcased in 2020 by Fortune Magazine in New York.

Bloemfontein residents are in for a treat this as Infini3 is set to host Selfie World on 28 and 29 May at the Upper Retail Level (Value co aisle) at Mimosa Mall.

The main aim of this event is for visitors to have FUN as the organisers introduce and present art in an innovative way, which allows attendees to interact whilst experiencing art.

According to Infini3’s Roxanne Konco, visitors to the Mall can look forward to a fun-filled day, which includes 10 unique selfie booths, an interactive art experience filled with fun, laughter, dance and a lot more entertainment with friends and/or family.

“Selfie World caters for both young and old looking for unique photo opportunities and for those who aim to take their selfie game to the next level. Even if you are not interested in taking any pics or videos, but would like to see the installations, you are more than welcome to make a turn.”

Konco explained that it is an interactive and immersive art museum installation designed to provide a setting for visitors to pose in photographs or take videos to be posted on social media. “Typical features of exhibits in Selfie World include colourful backdrops and props. With ours we have worked with visual artists to create the backdrops of every booth and cut outs of Selfie World.” Konco added that Selfie World is hosted by INFINI3, funded by the National Arts Council of South Africa, and involves visual artists from Mangaung District.

Community members may purchase tickets (R90 for adults, R50 for kids under 12) at the Selfie World entrance and for a maximum of an hour per ticket, they have access to all 10 booths.

Selfie rings will be available for hands-free operation; all you need is your smartphone. Strict enforcement of the Covid-19 safety regulations will apply as safety will be ensured.

This exciting event will take place from 09:00 to 18:00 on both days.
