‘Feminine Plural' is a multidisciplinary collective exhibition that combines the photography of Morate and Diego, the painting of Ruiz de Apodaca, the video of Davó and the textile art of Pomares. Five artists from Alicante, the first two from the capital; the other three, from Benidorm, which coincide in 'Plural Feminine' in the exploration, from the feminine perspective, of the world in which women are immersed.

Morate, Diego, Ruiz de Apodaca and Pomares (Davó excused his attendance), have participated in the opening ceremony of the exhibition in which they have been supported by the mayor, Toni Pérez; the councilors of Historical Heritage (organizing area of ​​the exhibition) and Equality, Ana Pellicer and Ángela Zaragozí; part of the municipal government team; and the curator of the exhibition, Alicia Lamarca.

Toni Pérez defined 'Plural Feminine' as an exponent of the fight "for the role of women" in today's society. A proposal “in search of identity and diversity”. The mayor claimed the great value of the creative project that "has its maximum exponent through the Boca del Calvari" in Benidorm, and also in its streets, converted with the espais d'art urbà into open-air museums.

For her part, Ana Pellicer described the exhibition as "very special" for having been "thought, created, expressed and embodied by women" and showing "feminine sentiment" in such a way that "it will not leave anyone indifferent". The person in charge of Historical Heritage invited all the residents and tourists to visit it and was sure that she will make them "reflect on many of the current issues".

Five women, five visions

In 'Femenino Plural' each of the creators contributes her particular vision of the reality of women. Thus, 'Planta Rei' by Lucía Morate combines nature and the human body from the perspective of her camera lens.

Through the self-portrait and the female body of 'I don't feel, I suffer', by Carolina Diego allows us to delve into the emotions of everyday life.

Ana Ruiz de Apodaca's abstract brush invites us to get to know 'Landscapes of the soul', a proposal in which abstract lines play with a space in which every woman is a source of life.

The binary and digital art in the form of a video proposed by Helena Davó in 'Estimated Time' questions time through a video installation called 'Sweet Dreams', consisting of a bed on which the characters of a constant and uneventful story are projected. beginning nor end.

Finally, Ana Pomares, through 'She loves me, she doesn't love me', addresses the harmonious combination of frames and bras, the problem of gender violence.
