The notion of birth is the stylistic drive to Warren Laine-Naida's poetics. For him it is, first of all, a core of a thousand faces and an ideal receptacle for experiencing the rupture of meanings: "The audience accepts chocolate and is asked to accept a sculpture in chocolate. To accept a new signified using the old signifier. It is an expression of the inexplicable, of the double meaning."
Chocolate is a versatile artistic medium and a cultural icon, but Laine-Naida saw it making flesh under natural demiurges like fire, humidity, mould, time - as well as industrial and fashion trends. It expressed caved-in figures of piety and motherhood, then suburban distress blown with shattered glass, tainted with toxic waste, wax or barbed wire. Now it expresses the glamorous heaven of commodities production.
Through the art of Warren Laine-Naida, the multiple faces and reveries of chocolate have been freed from the garden of our narrow gastronomical delights. He emancipated it from alimentary colonialism into a frenzy of chemical expressions that range from alchemy to sexuality to language
