BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Laura Reiman Farmers' Portraits Exhibition will be on the whole month of October

 

Visit during our weekend opening hours 11am to 6pm;

In celebration of Black History month portraits of cocoa farmers -painted with chocolate- from different parts of the world will be exhibited.

 

About 70% of the world’s cocoa production comes from West Africa nowadays, and throughout the history of chocolate consumption in Europe, cocoa would be cultivated by ‘invisible’ and mostly unpaid labour of farmers of African diaspora in the Caribbean and South America. With the portraits, the artist aims to make the faces of modern day farmers visible to the consumer and to recognize the labour of cocoa farmers worldwide, past and present.

Laura paints cocoa farmers and chocolate makers from all over the world with pure chocolate on canvas. She wants to make the faces behind the chocolate we consume visible with this collection of painted chocolate portraits. Just like human beings, the chocolate they are painted with ages, transforms, sometimes gets damaged. It makes the portraits vulnerable. But most of all the portraits show human beings from all parts of the world with their own dreams, life struggles and aspirations; all connected through chocolate.

On-going Chocolate Jewellery Exhibition by KRIWO

 

Visual artist Kristiane Wolf will exhibit and sell her amazingly sexy chocolate earrings at the Chocolate Museum. They are an expression of the natural forms that occur while using dripping techniques - much like Jackson Pollock did with paint.

Her wonderful creations will melt when worn on the skin so they are meant to be eaten before they do!
