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.
