ROME.- Remember, man, that thou art dust, and unto dust thou shalt return, G. 3,19
On 21/06/1907 Hilma Af Klimt writes the symbol 00 0 00 in the twenty-sixth page of her notes, to define a concept of origin, drawn not to comfort but capable of repeating itself, chaotically and dangerously. Here the zero does not represent a linear starting point, but a repeated and compound element in a perhaps endless movement. 00 0 00 is a world where the numbers after the zero do not exist and where the concept of accumulation disappears, leaving only to the elementary essence of things. Bosetto re-elaborates the concept of origin which does not create in image and likeness, but combines and mixes, reducing every living being to mud, earth and ash. The origin thus insinuates itself in every vital and temporal fragment with a compostist approach, in a tangle of forms and existences, destined to alternate both composition and decomposition and generated to dissolve and finally mix with each other.

Benni Bosetto reconstructs at ADA a place abandoned from everyday life where debris, dust and bacteria seem to have inhabited the room for an indefinite time, creating a new ecosystem, fed by those who pass through it. The exhibited sculptures eschew the concept of temporality, simulating a superorganism merged with the environment, free from the container and the form. Their features recall primordial and elementary forms that narrate a constantly repeated process in 00 0 00, where each creature is in kinship with the others. 00 0 00 reinterprets the myth of reincarnation in a metanarrative key, staging an indefinite hyperorganism which becomes surface, object, body and environment at the same time.
