1b: Maya Gold- Started in 1991 by the pair Craig Sams and Josephine Fairley, Green and Black’s was created as a way to provide high quality yet ethically sourced chocolate. One of the first such bars was Maya Gold, made using cacao beans grown on a plantation in Belize. Green and Black’s entire range had earned the Fairtrade mark by 2011.2a: Chocolate- Commencing his career in art with more traditional materials like oil paint and stained glass, Chidiac afterwards turned to using chocolate, now equipped by the sponsor Callebaut, a Belgian chocolate company. Whilst prone to cleaning his paint brushes by licking them, he often has to patrol his exhibitions to prevent visitors doing the same to his paintings!3c: Both of the above- Thomas Lipton released the idea of selling tea in pre-measured offers, with the packaging alone showcasing his company’s logo on a bright yellow background. Whilst this level of marketing may seem obvious to us now, again then tea was often sold from a chest, leaving purchasers wary of both the freshness and even if the seller had measured out the correct amount.4d: Blue- Due to rationing during the war, Rowntree’s had to alter the recipe used to make Kit Kats as fresh milk had turned scarce. Understanding that their customers could be disappointed with the change, Rowntree’s changed the colour of the wrapper, its identify, and even added an rationalization for the change on the packet.5a: Criollo- Unlike coffee’s proliferation of high quality Arabica, the Criollo variety of cacao bean is fairly scarce, making up only a few percent of the world’s cacao crop. Forastero makes up the bulk of the crop at over ninety percent, due to its ruggedness compared to the criollo, much like the robusta coffee bean.6b: Birmingham- First operating out of a shop on Bull Avenue, John Cadbury soon set up a manufacturing unit in a warehouse to produce more cocoa, which had sold particularly well in his shop. The company observed a succession of owners, with John’s brother and afterwards sons heading up the business, together with larger and larger factories. Cadbury’s even provided chocolate to the Royal family, which earned them a Royal warrant in 1854.7c: Portugal- During Portugal’s exploration of West Africa, they discovered the uninhabited islands of SГЈo TomГ© and PrГ­ncipe in the 1470s. Settlers quickly realised the potential of the rich volcanic soil on the islands and embarked on an agricultural spree. Early on, slaves from the African mainland were used to grow sugarcane, but afterwards coffee and eventually cocoa, the latter being the islands’ current cash crop.

"Butt Pirates of the World Unite and Take Over" Schwartz 2013
My drawings are heavily influenced by the books I’m reading at the time and I’ve been alternating between history books on the Holocaust and the Tales of the City series by Armistead Maupin. The Tales books are frivolous, addictive and silly at time but also deal with the reality of AIDS in the 80’s. This drawing brings together the genocide of minorities by AIDS and before that, the Holocaust in Europe. Both affected the whole world and both, in the beginning, were considered ‘not our problem’ by the rest of the world.  AIDS was considered a gay disease, so it was ignored by the right wing politicians who controlled America. Throughout the 80’s, AIDS activists fought for medication and compassion from the rest of the world but instead gay people were further demonized. 
I grew up and became sexually active in the era where HIV would kill you within a few years. Even though I was ‘straight’ at the time, I was still deathly paranoid of being infected but also bought into the idea that gay men could infect me just by being alone with them. I had almost no AIDS education and no facts. I was overcome with fears and propaganda spread by the religious right despite the fact that I grew up in large cities.
The showers and the trains in my drawings represent the means in which the minorities were killed by the Nazi’s. The characters all possess a shower head to give themselves the illusion that they are in control of their own fate and imminent death.

Emmanuel Boos and Esben Klemann: Systematic Uncertainty exhibition Copenhagen Ceramics

Emmanuel Boos and Esben Klemann: Systematic Uncertainty / Copenhagen Ceramics, Denmark
February 28 - March 28, 2013

In ceramics the unknown is a fate for the practitioner. Emmanuel Boos and Esben both welcome unpredictability. Moreover they are provoking it. They share a playful and experimental approach to the ceramic material and their works are bred from a great curiosity towards the processes of the material.

Emmanuel Boos, now living in London, was born and grew up in France. He trained with Jean Girel, one of the big names in French ceramics, known for his works with beautiful textural glazes. Emmanuel Boos equally places the glazes at the centre of his artistic practice, but goes further. He questions the classic hierarchy, where the materials as such are regarded as undifferentiated, depending on being given form, morphe, which traditionally is considered the essential part.

For Boos form is often a pretext, a playground for glazes to develop on. His interest lies with the poetic character and sensuality of the glaze, both in a direct sense as the fusion of basic materials and in the symbolic potential of this. His works are not conceptually based; rather they express a search for beauty, that strives for a form of aesthetic contemplation appealing firstly to our senses and our emotions.

For his first show in Denmark, Emmanuel Boos will be showing both plinth and wall pieces. His intent is to draw the viewer into the glaze, inviting us to meander in its depth through poetic reverie. His forms oscillate between mysterious enclosed objects – minerals with an underlying organic presence – and thin sheets of porcelain like canvases gently folding and developing into space.

The expressive heartland in Esben Klemann’s work is clearly defined by his interest in architecture, construction and material, and a constant urge to further develop the making-processes, that are essential for the expression of the final works.

On ceramics, he states: "People envisage a lot of different things when you use the word ceramics. Images of ordinary domestic items, giant-sized-vessels, reliefs by Asger Jorn, etc. Through changes in work-methods, tools and placements, I strive to add new images to the picture, believing that ceramics has the potential to offer something more and different. I purposely draw my experiences from other sculptural areas into the ceramic process, to push it all into new directions.

You may label my work non-thematic or abstract, or see it as a formal language which communicates by establishing artistically elaborated spaces and objects, that in contrast to the ordinary, inject vitality into things.”
