Lives in Milan
Benni Bosetto produces wall paintings and drawings, performances, sculptures and installations in which the body is deconstructed and reimagined. These choreographies cannot be temporally located but are inspired by and mix medieval tales, news stories, historical accounts, religious legends and local superstitions.
Anima (Saul, 2020) is an environmental and sound installation that evokes the human presence in absence. Filled with voices and sounds, the room seems abandoned, yet it evokes myths and quantic narrations. The torn wallpaper exposes drawings on the wall, while on the ground, amidst dust and waste, ceramic sculptures are reminiscent of organisms or organic elements. Bosetto rereads the dematerialization of the body, its transcending the space-time continuum and its becoming the image of a perennial becoming.
