Benidorm ultima la instalación de su nueva exposición monumental, firmada por el artista Jiménez Deredia

The Department of Historical and Cultural Heritage of the Benidorm City Council, directed by Ana Pellicer, is finalizing the installation of a new monumental exhibition, signed by the Costa Rican Jorge Enrique Jiménez Martínez, known in the artistic world as Jiménez Deredia, and which can be seen starting next Thursday, the 29th. Pellicer explained that “this exhibition, 'The Journey of Life', comes in collaboration with the Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències, with which we have a close and fruitful relationship that is "It has translated with the presence in Benidorm of exhibitions by international artists such as Hung Yi and Arne Quinze, as well as national authors such as Cristóbal Gabarrón."

The councillor has announced that “this new exhibition will be located on Paseo de Poniente, where the pedestals on which each work will rest are already being placed, and it is composed of six large-format marble and bronze sculptures titled Sueño, Crepúsculo, Encanto, Arrullo, Conciencia y Refugio.”

With these sculptures, Pellicer has stated, the author seeks to “encourage dialogue between art and public space as a vital and socially relevant form”; an exhibition proposal - she added - to which "we from the City Council join in by marrying perfectly with our conception of Benidorm as a large open-air museum in which the works come out to meet people."

'El viaje de la vida' will be in Benidorm until March 2025 and a tour of the exhibition is scheduled for this Thursday at 10:00 am.

The artist Jiménez Deredia has exhibited his sculptures in the streets of cities such as Florence, Rome, Mexico City, Miami and Valencia, among others and is the first Latin American sculptor who has a work in St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican, inside from a niche designed by Michelangelo Buonarroti between 1544 and 1564.
