Martha Petrona Jimenez Perez participated in a visual arts project with a performance

Camaguey- A performance inspired by the sculptural set Gossipers, authored by the ceramist based in Camagüey, Martha Petrona Jimenez Perez, took place in the Studio-Workshop Larios, located in that city.

The work was presented in the context of the fifth edition of Project 8 + 1, by the artist Leonardo Pablo Rodriguez Martinez. This edition of 8 + 1, "Flowers on the Wall" presented nine creators from Camaguey, some new or emerging in the world of art, along with others with great national and international recognition.

In the exhibition, eight women showed their work from the artistic point of view; while Martha was chosen to present her work from an audiovisual approach. This is the first time that the artist enters with her work and as director in the performance, as a manifestation of the visual arts. This proposal was produced - in addition - by the artist Daylen Jimenez Gonzalez.

The performance was intended to address various moments of the imaginary life of the Gossipers. These well-known characters from the Plaza del Carmen had a spiritual exchange with the audience in the show, from a different approach alternative, through shared prophecies with the present persons.

This exhibition of art proposes a change of formal, aesthetic and conceptual visuality within the work of these women. It was conceived for the experimentation of the creators, within their own works. It also resulted in an interest channel between the curator and the artists.

The exhibition will be available to the public until March 3, when the performance will be presented again and these well-known characters from the imagination of Martha Petrona Jimenez Perez will come to life once again.
