Award-winning sculptor Jaume Plensa permanently installed seven new large-scale sculptures at The City of Arts and Sciences, Valencia Institute. As part of a recent exhibition, the monumental outdoor artworks feature giant, cast iron heads of varying female subjects. The Barcelona-based artist is known for sculpting larger-than-life pieces that portray human body parts and letters. One of his more recent sculptures made its debut at the first Frieze Sculpture installment at Rockefeller Center in New York City this past April.

In other dynamic presentations, David Lynch recently launched a retrospective in Manchester entitled “My Head is Disconnected.”

Seven monumental sculptures by Jaume Plensa are on view now at Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències, Valencia, Spain. Each sculpture in the water features a large-scale portrait head of a woman who is reflecting. Her eyes are closed and gaze directed inward. Together, the arrangement encourages a tranquil moment that transforms public space into also a highly personal one. #jaumeplensa #plensa #ciutatdelesartsilesciencies #ciudadartesciencias @ciudadartesciencias #publicsculpture #portraits #sculpture #spain #valencia
