Naturalis Historia

The event is the Chiara Ricard’s solo exhibition, following the donation of Naturalis Historia, a wall ceramic installation, the name of which comes from Plinio il Vecchio encyclopedia, a wonderful essay on Nature (77 A.D.)
The exhibition supports three branches of my research: Naturalis Historia (wall ceramic installation), Mineralogies (paintings) and Homage to Haeckel(installation). Homage to Haeckel is a kind of Wunderkammer made of small zoomorphic sculptures, conserved in glass domes. The fragility of the materials and the complexity of the forms remind of the scientific cabinets of the XVIII e XIX centuries.
