The Department of Historical Heritage is already working on the next exhibition that will be exhibited on Paseo de Poniente starting this spring

The monumental sculptures by Arne Quinze say goodbye to Benidorm

Las esculturas monumentales de Arne Quinze se despiden de Benidorm

The monumental sculptures from 'My Secret Garden' series by Belgian artist Arne Quinze are going to leave Paseo de Poniente after nearly a year and a half of being part of this emblematic urban space of the city. This was announced by the councillor for Historical and Cultural Heritage, Ana Pellicer, who explained that yesterday the work of disassembling these sculptures began, which is carried out at night and work is estimated to be completed between tonight and tomorrow.

Pellicer recalled that this exhibition came to the city thanks to Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències and was inaugurated in September 2022. It was made up of six “very colourful” sculptures, several meters high and wide, made of aluminium, which represent different aspects of evolution and which appear light and fragile to the viewer's eyes.” And, although it was initially planned that the exhibition would remain only until May 2023, "their success was such that we made the necessary arrangements so that they could be here for longer."

In this way, the councillor highlighted that, finally, "we have been lucky to be able to have all these sculptures for almost one more year so that many more citizens and tourists could enjoy them", after which she transferred his public gratitude “to the artist and all those who have made it possible.”

Likewise, Ana Pellicer has announced that the Department of Historical and Cultural Heritage is already working on the next exhibition that will be exhibited at Paseo de Poniente next spring. The councillor highlighted that this walk is “a space that, next to  Avenida del Mediterráneo and its surroundings, presents a unique and avant-garde architecture and design that makes it truly attractive for exhibiting artistic creations, whether sculptures or photographs”.

Finally, the councillor recalled that Benidorm City Council remains firm in its commitment to “converting our city into an open-air museum, where art is closer to the citizen and not the other way around, and where works of great artistic value coexist with urban spaces as visited as this Paseo de Poniente, the Castell, Mediterráneo, Plaza de la Hispanidad or the different Espais d'Art Urbà in the city.”
