Dori Galiana presents her vision of the Major Patron Saint Festivities in Espai d’Art Urbà ‘El Carrasco”
The Espai d’Art Urbà ‘El Carrasco’ collects a selection of photographs of Dori Galiana taken during the Festes Majors Patronals (FMP), in recent years. An exhibition in which the artist from Benidorm has captured, through the lens of her camera, unique moments with the city, the citizens and the festivities as the protagonists.
The artist, together with the Councilor for Historical Heritage, Ana Pellicer, and the curator of the exhibition, Alicia Lamarca, have toured the exhibition explaining the reason for the selection of each of the images and the circumstances in which the snapshots were taken. The photographs are shown on lighting boxes, allowing for an even better appreciation of details at night.
Galiana, with more than twenty years of professional experience, has managed to transfer the detail of the study to the street. Queens, ladies or member of the festivity are their models, often involuntarily, of those scenes charged with emotion that are the essence of the Major Patron Saint Festivities Benidorm.
Dori Galiana in ‘El Carrasco’; David Revenga, in ‘Ponent’; Simeón Nogueroles and César García, in ‘El Pont’; and a collection of advertising posters of the FMP in 'Els Tolls', are combined in an initiative of Historical Heritage that aims to keep the image of Benidorm festivities present and more alive than ever in a year in which the pandemic has prevented its celebration.
