A barrel full of monkeys is popping up in Old Market Square… Don’t miss out or you’ll get caught red-handed!

Run, walk, ride, or roll through the Exchange where inflatables created by local artist Paul Robles will light up Old Market Square. The curved forms will lead you through a snake-like path and make you wonder, why are monkeys building pyramids in the Exchange? Why are their hands red? Are they ghosts of a pre-pandemic social scene?

See Hear Speak was conceived of during the pandemic and is intended to interrupt the quiet of a once thriving gathering place. It is an oddity calling for attention, conjuring a magnetic contradiction that highlights and denies the human experience of contact, folly, and closeness. The playful shapes are layered with monkeys and meaning to suggest team bonding exercises, sporty cheer(leaders), religious divination, and even fraternity hazing. Echoing society’s current unease, the title invokes the proverb of the Three Wise Monkeys and how the threat of isolation and despair can lead to compulsive diversion.

The temporary inflatables, commissioned through Winnipeg’s Public Art Program with support from the Winnipeg Foundation and presented by Winnipeg Arts Council, were installed September 25 – October 3 2021 in Old Market Square.

Tallman.Promo is proud to have partnered with the artist on this project. Thanks to the Winnipeg Arts Council for supporting the collaboration with the artist and to True North Sports and Entertainment for the loan of production supplies.

From the initial design to the 3D models, from the LED lighting to the blower locations, this project was a delight.

Inflatable advertising is a great way to create larger than life replicas that can be seen from a distance and generate a great amount of attention for various media forms. For this project we were excited to get to be a part of the advertising campaign for the highly anticipated Borat 2 film, being released on amazon prime video on October 23rd 2020. From the start deadlines the deadlines were tight and the risks were high, however the project was one our team felt we really wanted to be apart of.

Starting a mere 8 days before the inflatable was to set sail in the Toronto  harbour, we were contacted with the rush project and artwork to produce a larger than life inflatable replica of the famous Sasha Baron Cohen character of Borat.  The idea for this campaign was to have the large inflatable set sail on a barge through not only Toronto but other major cities around the world including New York, London UK to promote the launch of the new Borat 2 film.

Once the 40ft wide by 20ft high inflatable was created the team was then tasked to transport and install the unit on a large barge where it would set sail and capture the eye of media and individuals.  While our team was hoping for a calm and perfect day weather wise, the advertising and marketi

teams involved may have hoped for high winds for the 

giant floating inflatable to have a viral “take off” and grab the attention of individuals and media outlets everywhere. In order to properly install this unit our team had to properly position the inflatable and using a series of straps, hooks and air blowers we were able to adjust on the fly the positioning of Borat's arms and legs and create the experience we have all come to talk about.

The original Borat and now Borat 2 films are controversial comedy mockumentaries which, touch on sensitive subjects in today’s world.  The most evident regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and the constant debate over the usage of masks for safety reasons. While maybe unnoticeable at first glance, the small “man-kini” the Borat character was wearing was actually a large version of the most common medical mask.

A huge thank you from our team goes out to Silver Lining  Design Group for being an amazing client, allowing us to be a part of this huge project, working together with us and trusting us to deliver. Additional thanks goes out to Event Eleven and Pop! Events group for all the support and help with this project as well.

The team at Tallman.Promo is all looking forward to the release of Borat Subsequent Moviefilm to enjoy laughs and memories of the project. 

Gallery Stratford is now selling tote bags made from the recycled banners that once advertised past art exhibitions at the gallery.Galen Simmons, The Stratford Beacon Herald, Publishing date:Feb 07, 2021 Original article here. Gallery Stratford has partnered with Stratford’s Tall Man Promo to create unique tote bags made from recycled banners from the art gallery’s past exhibitions. Pictured, Gallery Stratford director/curator Angela Brayham and Tallman owner J. Oosterom show off some of the bags now available for purchase at $25 apiece. Galen Simmons/The Beacon Herald/Postmedia Network Supporters of Gallery Stratford can now take a piece of its history home in the form of tote bags made from recycled banners once used to advertise past exhibits.

The bags, being sold for $25 apiece while supplies last in support of future gallery exhibitions and programming, are the result of a partnership between Gallery Stratford and Stratford marketing and design company TallMan.Promo.

“When we decided to reopen in August, I wanted to do banners outside. (Tall Man owner) J. Oosterom and I have partnered on various projects to support the gallery, and I asked him if he can do the banners for me,” Brayham said. “So when we were hanging them, we started talking (and) the one thing I hate about that kind of product is they just go to landfill. We’ve got this three-month use and then what do you do with this banner?”

Having recently rediscovered a number of these vinyl banners that had been stored instead of thrown away, Brayham and Oosterom came up with the idea of repurposing them into what Brayham called wearable art pieces.

“Fifteen years ago, we started doing inflatable advertising, so we do fabric and sewing for those. … This is something that is relatively simpler than doing large inflatables, so we kind of said, ‘All right, let’s figure this out,'” ” Oosterom said. “The number of bags we get out of a banner depends actually on how well the banner has survived over the time period.”

The number of bags Oosterom and his team can create out of a single banner also depends on how much of the banner is covered in usable design as opposed to blank space.

“They’ve kind of got this artsy, industrial chic … and what I’m going to do with every bag I sell, I will stick the catalogue or the handout from that show (those banners) came from. So in case you didn’t see the show, you’ll have the context for where that little piece of artwork came from. … So hopefully, people will start wearing these around town and they’ll be able to recognize, ‘Oh, my bag goes with that bag.’ So I think it’s kind of this neat sort of way of connecting people as well,” Brayham said.

While supplies of the bags made from existing banners are limited, Brayham said her goal now is to have Oosterom and his team create tote bags from new exhibition banners. That will keep the material out of landfill while giving patrons a way to show their support for the gallery.

For more information or to purchase a bag, call Gallery Stratford at 519-271-5271 or email Brayham at [email protected].
