The Candelaria TEA Space (the Old Town Hall Arts Space in Candelaria) hosts an exhibition by Daniel Jordán entitled "Fazer horas" until 17 June. Visitors will find everything from figures hidden in the benches of the hall to birds in the balconies, figures and ceramic plates from these homes and even sleeping pets. It can be visited Mondays to Fridays, from 09:00 to 14:00 and 17:00 to 20:00. Admission is free.

It is a compendium of beings described by classical and oriental literature of all ages that have become part of a certain mythological bestiary. The Argentinian writer states, "We do not know what the dragon means, just as we do not know the meaning of the universe, but there is something in the image of the dragon that is congenial to the human imagination, and thus the dragon arises in many latitudes and ages. It is, one might say, a necessary monster, not some ephemeral and casual creature like the chimera". Borges takes up Jung's theories on the universality of myths and symbols, and so he alludes to creatures that come from the garden of dreams, which reappear in different cultures and religions, and which have emerged from the human subconscious: incredible creatures that feed on hidden desires, fears and concerns inherent to human existence.
