Benni Bosetto

Biography

Benni Bosetto is an Italian artist based in Milan. Her work combining drawing, sculpture, installation and performance always involves the body and its gesture. Her artistic practice is based on the superposition of fragmented narratives from anthropology, religion, popular beliefs and art history. Her research draws in particular on the study of ancient and contemporary healing rituals, and on the states of semiconsciousness specific to meditation and sleep. Bosetto creates openended visual narratives in which the gaze wanders from one scene to another without ever focusing on a specific point.
