Spoof Children’s Book Teaches About Death, Sex And God Through Modern Art
A satirical take on the 1960s learning-to-read Ladybird books takes Jane, Peter and Mummy on an adventure through a contemporary gallery.
‘We Go To The Gallery’ is a satirical work by British comedian and artist Miriam Elia in the style of the classic British 1960s learn-to-read Ladybird books. In the spoof, Jane, Peter and Mummy visit a modern art gallery and learn about death, God and sex. For example, when confronted with an empty room, Mummy explains that ‘there is nothing in the room because God is dead.’
