Ferrol, 15 May 2019
The Port Authority of Ferrol-San Cibrao is hosting a new exhibition featuring iron sculptures made by the artist Cipriano Lourido. Ship of fools is the name of this exhibition, which is composed of ten works, sculpted in iron, copper, brass and steel, and which is completed with six pictorial paintings.
All the pieces have as a theme the trips that the artist made throughout the world. Cipriano Lourido lived some years outside of Galicia. The places and people he met inspired him to create the works that can be visited in the Port of Ferrol. Two of the sculptures are unprecedented: A bas-relief made of iron and copper that represents the Aztec Stone of the Five Suns, and an iguana made of iron, brass, copper and stainless steel, created specifically for this exhibition.
The opening of the exhibition will take place tomorrow at 7 pm in the Exhibition Hall of the Port of Ferrol. It will be an act open to the public accompanied by electronic music. The exhibition will be opened until May 25, from 12 pm to 2 pm and from 6 pm to 8 pm.
