For the 2013 Biennale, Jonathas de Andrade tells the story of the negobom (“the black candy”) a very popular sweet in the Northeast of Brazil. Using an almost anthropological documentary approach, Jonathas de Andrade develops a narrative structure that is formally very clear, and which draws on both conceptual art and Brazilian visual poetry of the 1950-70s.The candy production chain is segmented into photographs, each supported by a text and describing the various operations necessary to manufacture the sweet. These images are accompanied by accounts documents and comments from the forty workers from the factory where the artist carried out his study. The artwork here is an investigative operation; with the story of this candy, the artist uncovers the power relationships camouflaged by the myth of a democratic, multicultural, harmonious Brazil. And he asks questions about the complexity of social interactions when they are connected only to the amount of profit they generate.
