Feeling bored this bank holiday weekend? Are you in desperate need of a mini-escape away from the stressful reality? Or fancy immersing yourself in an artistic atmosphere of worldwide creations? Then you can immigrate to the Pangaea, if you visit the Saatchi Gallery (in the sublime Sloane Square,) and delve into the 'Pangaea II: New Art from Africa and Latin America' exhibition. Moreover you can visit as many times as you want because of the wonders of the free entry!

Before you visit the exhibition it will be quite useful to be informed about the concept otherwise you will not only be able to comprehend the display, hence feeling like a bewildered puppy, but you will not be able to fulfil the experience to the 'max.'

Pangaea was the supercontinent that split 250 years ago, though it was a landmass that conjoined Africa and Latin America. It is a 20th century word that conjures 20th century fantasies of the world when current continents were united. The exhibition display includes photography, painting, installation and sculpture from 75 countries, revealing shared experiences that continues to join them through rapid urban expansion, migration and economic unrest. Furthermore it is reuniting the continents with the prehistoric past and the globalised art world of the present, ever increasing, imposing parallels and historic relationships.

Phillipa Adams, the director of the exhibition, stated that: ‘Pangaea was an umbrella to enable both to exhibit together.’ The reason being is because the material was far too exciting to be presented separately, also it will commemorate the bond between Africa and Latin America when they were united.

Most importantly the display presents some abstract yet meaningful masterpieces that entices the visitors to remain in one spot, gluing the soles of their shoes onto the ground, whilst being infatuated by the artwork. From my experience there were two sculptures that were particularly honoured in the exhibition due to the fact that one room would be dedicated to each of the sculptures, additionally these sculptures were innovatively composed out of materials that would normally be discarded.

Numero uno: Jean François Boclé- ‘Everything Must Go!’-2014 This sculpture involves bringing everyday objects into a network of relations, highlighting capitalism, privilege and injustice. The sea of 97,000 blue plastic bags is a quasi-memorial to lives lost at sea during transatlantic slave trade. The supermarket carrier bags are air inflated to symbolise the priceless commodity of life that should be cherished. I like how the bags are neatly intertwined, signifying the fragility of life and the vital loving relationships between people. An ordinary plastic bag on its own is trivial however when amongst thousands the sculpture is given the artistic touch, this is because nobody would have the courage to create something from mundane objects.

Numero dos: Rafael Gómezbarros- ‘Casa Tomado’- 2013 Here hundreds of 50cm long ants crawl across the walls and the ceilings like a disturbing infestation, each ant is made of two conjoined casts of human skulls. The title refers to a ghost story by Julio Cortazar, an Argentinean writer, where Rafael employs the army of insects to correlate to the thousands of displaced people who haunt the country’s history. Meanwhile the small room that the sculpture was kept in provokes the idea of claustrophobia, making the infestation seem more fearful due to the fact that visitors would be only a few centimetres away, enhancing the size of the ants that makes the whole concept quite unsettling. My sister had to frantically rush out of the room after a small glimpse of the ants as she dreaded the notion that those ants could crawl into her nightmares, but you have to consider that she has a phobia of six-legged creatures!

If you like the rare opportunity of exploring the Pangaea in one day or you just like contemporary art, pop to the Saatchi Gallery and do make sure you take your time when observing, buy a postcard in the gift shop and take lots of photographs. If you are one of those people that never has the time to leave the house because you are bombarded with exam revision or homework, don’t worry as you will still be able to visit the exhibition later on. However the exhibition will be disposed of on September 6 2015 and time flies by quickly so it is best to visit as early as possible. If you can.
