closed Deredia in Genova

The show

Genoa is transformed into a setting for the great sculptures of the Costa Rican artist Jiménez Deredia (Heredia, 1954), which become a powerful sign in the urban landscape of Genoese autumn, from the Brignole station to the Porto Antico.

 

8 large works, of which 7 unpublished, with the characteristic circular and oval shapes recurring in the artist's sculptural imagery, will accompany the viewer on a fluid and harmonious journey through the urban fabric of the city.

 

THE EXHIBITION

The City of Genoa, with its culture and history, offers itself as an ideal setting to present the sculpture of the Costa Rican artist, but rooted in Liguria, Jiménez Deredia. The recurring circular and oval shapes in his sculptural imagery accompany the viewer on a fluid and harmonious journey through the urban fabric.

 

Jiménez Deredia recovers the sphere as a symbol that awakens ancestral values, alludes to transformation, it is a shadow that turns into light. The sphericity for Deredia is therefore not a static element; on the contrary, it indicates a path, a process, a journey: that of the man who begins the understanding of his own being and of the elements that live within each of us. For Deredia we are all a breath of life that travels around a burning sun in the immensity of space. We are the spirit that knows to help with its existence to fulfill the destiny of the universe. We are the cosmic consciousness of being: stardust in transmutation.

 

Jiménez Deredia is one of the most important contemporary artists in Latin America, but has lived in Liguria since 1976. The exhibition project “Deredia a Genova - The sphere between two worlds” is therefore the result of a deep bond between the master Deredia and the Ligurian territory, which adopted it more than forty years ago.
