Beautiful by Nature

The historical rooms of Studio Museo Francesco Messina in Milan hosts the exhibition Belle di Natura. Opere di Gianluca Balocco e Zachari Logan (Beautiful by Nature. Works by Gianluca Balocco and Zachari Logan), curated by Francesca Bacci and Maria Fratelli and organized on the occasion of the International Women’s Day 2018.

The sublime sculptures by the master Francesco Messina – dedicated to the three ballerinas Aida Accolla, Carla Fracci and Luciana Savignano in the 1970s – are here displayed next to photographs of the étoiles, which are today portrayed by Gianluca Balocco, and next to the naturalistic drawings on the affinities of the universe by Zachari Logan.

«The exhibition highlights the ability of Francesco Messina to capture the never-changing essence of his portraits, which are today revisited by Balocco with the same care and interpretative strength. The photographs of the three internationally famous ballerinas, Accolla, Fracci and Savignano – next to the drawings by Logan – recompose the continuity and harmony of nature, of which man is a part. Planet Earth is a whole, the aim of art is to recompose it in a hug», says Maria Fratelli, highlighting the fil rouge that links the artists in a revelation of beauty joined with the harmony of nature.

The exhibition Beautiful by Nature. Works by Gianluca Balocco and Zachari Logan is organized by the Council of Milan, Department of Culture – Studio Museo Francesco Messina. Pursued by the director of the museum, Maria Fratelli, the display is part of the series of events Il lato della scultura (The side of sculpture) that is dedicated to the relationship between sculpture and bi-dimensional image, either photograph or drawing.
