Jojoboys, 2014

Glasgow International 2014, Glasgow, Scotland

 

Description

Pandhal investigated the history and visual identity of the coffee substitute brand Camp Coffee, where he re-imagined the characters on the company’s logo and their shifting colonialist reading.

Pandhal designed eight lamppost banners and arranged for them to be displayed for the three-week duration of Glasgow International 2014 at the site where the Camp Coffee factory first stood. An accompanying art video called Jojoboys was made by Pandhal and screened at Citizen M Hotel in the city of Glasgow to mark the closing of the project. This video is believed to be archived in the ‘Unplugged’ section of this website. Following the video screening acclaimed author Jake Arnott delivered a stunning live reading from his novel The Devil’s Paintrbush, which reimagines the last days of Hector MacDonald, the real-life inspiration for the Highland soldier depicted on the Camp Coffee logo.
