Jiménez Deredia / Trapani – Segesta


Costa Rican sculptor Jiménez Deredia presents a cycle of monumental sculptures and works in white marble on the historical-symbolic path leading to the Segesta Archaeological Park in Trapani, one of the most beautiful antique sites in the world.
A selection of the Latin American artist’s work can be seen at the Birgi Airport “Vincenzo Florio”, used for the first time as an exhibition venue for contemporary art, in Trapani’s Historical Centre with its Corso Vittorio Emanuele in front of the church Chiesa del Collegio dei Gesuiti (currently next to the High School “Leonardo Ximenes”) and the Piazza del Mercato del Pesce. A significant part of his artistic production will confront the fascinating religious venues of the archaeological site’s Agora – the largest in the Mediterranean -, the Theatre and the Doric Temple in Segesta, thereby bridging the gap between past and present. Deredia presents for the first time his new work Armonia in white Carrara marble.
