A giant peanut with a blue face and red lips resides as a deity over a vibrant world of cartoon-like creatures. This is Maní, the fictional civilization created by Spanish artist Ana Barriga in which society centres around the peanut. For her solo show at Kristin Hjellegjerde’s gallery in London Bridge, the artist presents a new series of imaginative paintings that visualize everyday life in the peanut community. Through these surreal scenarios, Barriga pokes fun at real-life conventions, offering the viewer the opportunity to both laugh at and question the foundations on which civilizations are built. The exhibition runs until the next 8th of February 2020.
Art proffesionals from eight different nationalities attended the gastronomic cross-culture event by Brit Es
Artists, curators, art valuers, critics, researchers and private collectors from Japan, Russia, Germany, USA, Italy, Israel, United Kingdom, and Spain participated in this gastronomic cross-culture event, held by Brit Es in the heart of Shoreditch.
Brit Es’s team, led by Carolina Núñez Roca and Vanesa Cejudo, created an event where the food menu was used as a schedule to introduce the artist’s conversations.
Last Monday, Brit Es hosted a very special event inspired by the cross-culture concept: a Supper Club created as a new way to connect with the artists and their practices. A new way to discover London’s Spanish art vibe in a new way: interacting with artists, tasting a secret menu and listening to the sound of a Steinway piano.
The event included conversations with four fabulous artists: Rosana Antolí, Gracjana Rejmer-Canovas, Ernesto Cánovas, Pablo A. Padilla Jargstorf, and a special menu created by Chef Antonio Sierra, who came from Extremadura for the event.
The Brit Es Supper Club was kindly sponsored by the Embassy of Spain in London, Bodega Soul, La Forja Restaurant and the collaboration of the Shoreditch Treehouse.
