About Doing it for Daddy: Founded in 2006 by Renee Holleman, Bettina Malcomess and Linda Stupart, the artist collective were billed as “creative practitioners hell bent on challenging existing perceptions and attitudes in the visual arts” in a statement on the Cape 07 website. In July last year they staged a one-night event at the AVA Gallery; for their site-specific contribution to Spier Contemporary 2007, launched in mid December 2007, they led participants on a tour of the Spier wine estate.
