Miriam Elia / We go to the gallery

“Remember the Peter and Jane books? (…) The iconic children’s books depict two siblings visiting places with their parents and pet dog, helping children learn about reading and key words of the alphabet along the way. Inspired by their adventures, artist Miriam Elia created a much darker spin on the series called We Go To The Gallery. (…) In Elia’s book, Peter and Jane visit an art gallery. Peter stares at large vaginas, considers the idea that God is dead and experiences guilt for his own existence after his mother reveals that the reason she isn’t an artist is because he’s alive.”
