Milano – From Thursday 10 June to Sunday 11 July 2021 it Francesco Messina Museum Study of Milan presents the exhibition Organism & Eternality, the first major solo exhibition by the Korean sculptor and designer Kim Seung Hwan in a Milanese museum, curated by Martina Corgnati.
Milano – The exhibition is part of the summer schedule of the Municipality of Milan The Beautiful Summer and is designed as a meeting between two great masters of sculpture: Kim SeungHwan’s works find their place within the spaces of the former church of San Sisto in an ideal dialogue between expressive languages and different matrices, which sees the works of the Korean artist express themselves alongside the bronzes, waxes and terracotta of the Sicilian sculptor kept here.
Milano – As the duplicity of the title suggests, Organism & Eternality is an exhibition project focused on two large corpus of works which together offer a glimpse into the evolution of Kim SeungHwan’s research over the past thirty years: Organism, a series of unpublished sculptures in translucent steel, mirroring, of new production; ed Eternality, a selection of terracotta half-busts and heads made in the 1990s. In the rooms of the Francesco Messina Studio Museum in Milan, a journey between future and past, artifice and nature, modernity and archaicity, where the notions of life, eternity and spirituality expand, overcoming any dialectic.
The exhibition can be visited at free entry in hours 10.00-17.30 from Tuesday to Sunday (last admission at 5.00 pm). For weekends and public holidays, reservations are required at least 24 hours before the visit (for more information call 02 86453005).
