Benni Bosetto exhbition: Tête en l'air
Tête en l'air
12 February - 26 March 2022
Campoli Presti is pleased to announce Tête en l’air (head in the clouds), Benni Bosetto's first solo exhibition with the gallery.
The exhibition revolves around the idea of distraction as a mental state that allows unexpected connections between the swinging moments of focus and drift. Inspired by the holy iconography of the Italian Renaissance, Benni Bosetto creates enigmatic sculptures and drawings on silk that serve as containers for ‘divinely useless’ experiences. A concealed language, a form of mystery emerges throughout the gallery's space leading the visitors to feel constantly off track, turn their heads and change their gaze as lost in a fragment of the artist’s reverie.
