Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has entered into a benefactor relationship with Rockbund Art Museum (RAM), Shanghai. As part of this arrangement, the partnership will bring American artist Asad Raza’s work Root sequence. Mother tongue, to the Rockbund Art Museum.

The installation will now form part of ‘RAM HIGHLIGHTS 2017: DISPLACE’, a project which aims to transform the museum into a boundary-breaking experimental space, fostering a diverse and yet open viewing experience. The installation will mark the Chinese debut for the work, which was first shown at the Whitney Biennial, 2017.

Additionally, and most importantly, the Rolls-Royce Art Programme will maintain a relationship with the museum and artist, to further show the work around the world. In this instance, Root sequence. Mother tongue, will, after a six day public exposure at Rockbund Art Museum, be reconstituted at venues which will be announced in due course.

Torsten Müller-Ötvös, Chief Executive Officer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars commented, “Asad Raza’s work Root sequence. Mother tongue, is an intriguing and beguiling installation that challenges the conventions of how we interact with art. The Rolls-Royce Art Programme seeks to foster reativity and we are thrilled that the public will once again experience this unique and exciting installation.”

Larys Frogier, Director of the Rockbund Art Museum, commented, “The Rockbund Art Museum is honoured for the brilliant support given by the Rolls-Royce Art Programme to Root Sequence, Mother Tongue, a stunning artwork created by Asad Raza, that combines eco-care, visual arts, choreography and performance, with ongoing collective artistic contributions. In the framework of the DISPLACE art event produced for the RAM Highlight 2017 edition, the two organisations share the same value for excellence, high quality and unique creative projects. They also stand at the forefront of supporting new art formats, beyond the usual definition of art exhibition and art object. Such collaboration between Rolls-Royce and RAM is based on a sincere and full engagement in favour of the artists’ projects and as such it envisions brand new possibilities for contemporary art development.”

The Rolls-Royce Art Programme has committed to creatively contribute to the fabric of the contemporary art world and seeks to work collaboratively with internationally acclaimed art institutions and museums, to bring the work of extraordinary artists to the public, which might not otherwise be available for public viewing.

Root sequence. Mother tongue will bring the forest – a space of myth and fairy tales – into the museum. The installation will include 26 trees planted in soil-filled wooden boxes and local Chinese people who act as ‘caretakers’ for the trees, which collectively, the artist describes as characters, individual inhabitants in a living network. Each tree is grown locally, and their continuing growth throughout the installation forms part of the exhibition, alongside the improvised interaction of the caretakers, who might even opt to move the trees, as part of their performance. UV lights are strategically placed to encourage the trees’ photosynthesis throughout the installation, whilst casting a pink hue over the proceedings.

Objects belonging to the caretakers and relating to their personal histories are also incorporated into the installation, creating an intriguing and unexpected immersive experience. 


Raza intends to create an environment that provides visitors a park-like respite from the traditional museum viewing experience, shunning silence and sedentary observation in preference of interaction and stimulation. Adding a further complexity to the work, the space can be adapted for other artists or performers to interact with the environment, acting as guest contributors to the piece.

Asad Raza commented, “It is a privilege to bring my piece Root sequence. Mother tongue to China as part of this groundbreaking exhibition, DISPLACE, in which live presence and interaction will animate the Rockbund Art Museum. These are new grounds on which novel forms of art-making are being pursued. As the piece leaves behind a permanent grove of trees, I look forward to returning over the years to take care of it. Rolls-Royce’s focus on hand-made craftsmanship is linked to these forms of presence: when the living being takes precedence over the mere machine.”

The Rolls-Royce Art Programme celebrates a shared philosophy with the world of contemporary art. To date, Rolls-Royce has worked with leading international artists and key figures from the contemporary art world including: Yang Fudong, Isaac Julien and Ugo Rondinone.

Asad Raza’s installation Root sequence. Mother tongue will be publicly exhibited at the Rockbund Art Museum with the support of the Rolls-Royce Art Programme from 29 September to 4 October 2017.

Last night, I attended an event curated by Rémy Martin  to explore the well known Cognac, it’s origins and much more. The event held at Royal Society of Arts in Charing Cross began with a brief presentation about the history of the brand and the region it calls home. Founded in 1724 and based in the city of Cognac, it is one of the biggest cognac producers and is also part of the Comité Colbert, an association of luxury businesses which promotes French know-how worldwide. Beyond two simple letters, Rémy Martin XO is the invitation to broaden your horizons and appreciate new experiences this Christmas.

The name Rémy Martin comes from the name of the company founder, born in 1695 near Rouillac. A winegrower by trader, in 1724 he created a trading house of cognac. After his death in 1773, his grandson, also named Rémy, took over the business. In 1841, Paul-Emile-Rémy Martin assumed control of the business and oversaw great growth. He added a logo to the bottles and cases, in the shape of a centaur, a mythological creature whose starsign Sagittarius matched that of Martin. The Rémy Martin brand is today known for the distinctive centaur logo and in China is called réntóumă (人头马), literally “man-headed horse”.

In 1981, Rémy Martin imagined XO, an opulent cognac characterised by a rare aromatic complexity. Made from hundreds of the finest eaux-de-vie, from the two most sought-after vineyards of the Cognac region – Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne . Appreciated neat, on ice, or in a classic cocktail like an Old Fashioned, every sip of Rémy Martin XO is a new experience as we found out when we plunged right into an actual virtual reality experience set up by the brand exploring it’s history.  In the middle of conversations about Parmesan cheese, grapes, and off course wood. We got the big reveal the ultimate taste straight no mixers and shaken but not stirred. 

Ana Almedia, Senior Brand Manager at  Rémy Martin added “Remy Martin retains the crown as the best Cognac worldwide. It is smooth, full-bodied and long-lasting with both exquisite and sophisticated flavours”. That is exactly what i like to hear when drinking a cognac and the flavours Ana mentioned certainly  made sense as a presentation of several food items led the audience into a tasting game of challenging their senses to find out a mix of  orange and cinnamon, grapes, late summer fruits and floral notes, such as jasmine, woody tobacco, white and dark chocolate and much more. All flavours attributed to Rémy Martin. The one word that stood strong was ‘legacy’ with the cognac’s brand ambassador,  “Rémy Martin wants to be around for the next hundred of years and more”.

In summary,  Rémy Martin XO delivered an outstanding sensory experience, and we can recommend this as the ultimate Cognac to delight when gifting or entertaining at home this Christmas . As we left the Royal Society of Arts fully sober (of course!) but more knowledgeable about Remy Martin.

We know that Russia is the home of Vodka, the UK is the mother of Pimm’s and Mexico the birthplace of Tequila, but what do other countries have to offer that we’re missing out on?

There are more drinks out there than the lager you’ll find on tap at a chain pub. Aperitif to digestif, Anglo-Saxon hero drinks to chasers for beer, you’ll only find a truly unique drinking experience if you’re willing to travel for it.

A  new graphic from JohnSlots reveals the international drinks you’re less likely to have heard of, ranging from the rice drink brem from Bali to makgeolli in South Korea – and covering a few more familiar names along the way, like mead (and maybe gløgg).

The infographic offers the ingredients involved in each drink, including everything from spirits and spices to fruit and vegetables. There are flavours like cashew and coconut, dates, carob, or even artichoke, so whatever your taste and wherever you go, there’s bound to be something to tantalise your taste buds.

Wine Bright Lakka Diamond

As well as the name and flavour of the drink, you can find out a bit about their backgrounds, and how they stand out as a symbol of the local identity. After all, to find the heart of a culture, go straight to the food and drink!

Image result for Akvavit

Some of the more curious beverages include:

  • Patxaran – comprising both coffee and either cinnamon or anise flavours, this Spanish drink has a lot going on. It’s usually served after meals, in theory to to aid digestion.
  • Akvavit – flavoured with spices and built on spirits (mostly Brännvin), the Swedish drink “akvavit” literally translates as “water of life”, and is often drunk after a traditional song has been sung.
  • Gløgg – a hot and fruity mulled wine, gløgg is generally served around Halloween and Christmas, often with a Norwegian rice pudding called risgrøt.
  • Lakka – cloudberries are an amber-coloured fruit similar to raspberries and blackberries. They’re the key ingredient in lakka, a Finnish liqueur.
  • Jenever – Jenever is the Dutch drink that eventually gave rise to gin. Flavoured with juniper, it comes in two variants: oude (old) and jonge (young), where the former contains at least 15% malt, and the latter less than 15%.

A drink is more than the sum of its parts. It’s a distillate of its culture – these are the drinks you’ll struggle to get outside.

With  various landmark luxury shops such as Harrods it’s often clear to see why Knightsbridge is seen by most as London’s  one stop destination for high street Luxury retailers. However, Knightsbridge is also home to  a few a beautiful restaurants, cafe’s and bars nestled among the ever vibrant shopping mix. A typical example is Buddha Bar, a pan-Asian restaurant and cocktail bar, with branches in several countries including the  flagship branch in Paris. However, the London branch headed by restaurant manager, Lucian Serban is setting the standard as the place to hangout if you are in the know… It’s luxury, oriental decor and interior sets the scene for the delicious food menu with a selection of offerings from China, Japan and Thailand.


From  the delicious steamed sea bass with Thai basil, lemongrass and sweet chilli sauce to the large sushi and sashimi selection. The service is top quality and  restaurant manager, Lucian Serban and his team go a long way to ensure that all  guests feel truly welcome in the establishment.  He commented “Some of our signature dishes include Spicy Mango Maki – with king crab, prawn tempura & spicy mango sauce, Grilled rack of lamb – spicy coconut crust with a fennel sandal and we are very excited for guests to try out the extensive selection of pan-asian cuisine on offer”.

For those more interested in the drinks list. I can guarantee you that the selection of cocktails are distinct of Buddah Bar’s  experimental style and hand crafted by in-house. Popular signature cocktails include  a champagne and rose liqueur fused ‘Bubble Wrap’, the ‘Blue Knightsbridge’, a delicious mix of cognac, rum, ginger and peach, and of course their very own twist on a much loved classic, the ‘Tokyo Old Fashioned’, with the addition of umeshu plum sake and chocolate bitters alongside Hibiki whiskey. So, when you fancy delving into the magical pan-asian world of fine dinning why not pay visit to Buddha Bar London and give us your review…We can almost guarantee it will be more than a thumbs up!

Buddha Bar London is located at;

Address: 145 Knightsbridge, London SW1X 7PA

Our search for authentic tastes in the capital city led us to Notting Hill. An area of London made famous by the annual carnival and iconic in Hollywood by Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts classic film of thesame title! This year,  it is about to make more noise in culinary via the launch of  Cottons Caribbean Restaurant and Rhum Shack.


The Cottons brand, have been around for over 30 years serving authentic Caribbean cuisine all over London and with branches both in Camden and Shoreditch. The  Notting Hill launch was most anticipated by foodies and critics alike.
As we sampled the menu on offer . It was clear to see that the owners had gone above and beyond to make sure that Cottons stands out from competition and delivers the best of Caribbean cuisine with an authentic twist. As for the drinks, i ordered  signature Cotton’s rum, with a kick of ‘je ne sais quoi’... that’s French for ‘i don’t know’ what was in it but it sure tasted phenomenal!!  Cottons has the largest rum collection in the UK, with over 300 varieties available. From Reggae Rum Punch to Killer Doppis to Piña Coladas, the Rhum Shack will be shaking up both classic and innovative cocktails using their own signature style and recipes.The original Cottons opened in Camden over 30 years’ ago and is still thriving today, while the Street Food extraordinaire Boxpark Cottons in Shoreditch launched over three years ago. Cottons Notting Hill will be the couture sister to the brand offering a more refined experience, but still keeping the colourful vibe and authentic Caribbean flavours for which Cottons is renowned.

Jamaican born Head Chef, Nikki McLeod, held the reins at Cottons Camden for 10 years. Dutch Manager, Martin Orbons, was previously at Virgin Hotels in Chicago, and Viceroy Hotels and Resorts in Miami.

Fresh, organic flowers such as chive flowers and coriander flowers will be used within the dishes enhancing them both aesthetically and taste-wise.
What lets down most restaurants is customer service . However, at Cotton’s Notting Hill the service  was truly exceptional. All staff, really bring the Caribbean vibe of fun, relaxed, courteous, and fantastic service. So, if you are stuck in the office and thinking of trying something new or perhaps want a little taste of the Caribbean sunshine right here on your doorstep. Cottons Notting Hill is highly recommended.
