Martha Jimenez represents Camaguey at the Ceramic Biennial in Havana

Camaguey- The Ceramic Biennial of Havana projects the opening on December 14 of the personal exhibition "Riesgo", by Martha Jimenez, which will include the presentation of the art book "The difficult thing to be female".

Ceramics and metal works of the series "The Circus" integrate the new proposal of the artist, based in Camaguey, which on this occasion, according to the curator and gallerist Yaniel Perez Guerra, "opportunely transgresses the ceramic installation, as an exercise endowed with valid discursive force and visual harmony".

"The proposal demonstrates the ups and downs of a seesaw, the expectant succession of days as in the cyclic movement of the wheels, the creativity in the work as symbolized by the sewing machines, and the vision of humanity as a flock of goats that alludes to the sacrifice", insists the specialist in visual arts.

The public will appreciate "Riesgo" from this Friday at 10:00 a.m. and until February 14, 2019, at the Hispanic American Culture Center, located at Malecon street, Number 17, between Prado and Capdevila, explained the note sent to Adelante Newspaper.

The National Museum of Contemporary Cuban Ceramics is the main promoter of the Ceramic Biennial that includes sculptures, installations and projects, and maintains a close link with Martha Jimenez, UNESCO Prize in 1997 for her Sculptural Ensemble at Plaza del Carmen, Camaguey.

Recognized as one of the representatives of Cuba's contemporary visual arts, she has been honored at this Havana Biennial, and among other awards she holds the Award at the Second Contemporary Teapot Biennial, in Shanghai, China; and the Prize for Best Monumental Sculpture at the 5th International Terracotta Symposium, in Eskisehir, Turkey.

Her works are located in institutional and private collections in Cuba, France, the United States, the United Kingdom, the Czech Republic and Canada, among other nations.
