Bernardi Roig will look at the damaged work of art when he visits the museum again on January 27, 2010. His plastic work usually with white sculptures copying real people as a meditation about the sense of the human figure itself being the last and lonely presence.

VALENCIA.- A 32-year-old man has been arrested after
breaking a sculpture that was on view outside the Instituto Valenciano de Arte
Moderno (IVAM). The sculpture by Bernardi Roig has been valued at Euro
80,000.
The man was detained and arrested at 4:00 AM this past Sunday
by policemen after the guard at the museum alerted them of the damage to the
sculpture. An IVAM spokesperson said that the damaged sculpture has been taken
to a workshop where Bernardi Roig will look at it when he visits the museum
again on January 27, 2010.
