Pristine surfaces, metallic shapes, fabrics that glow in dim light - Bosisio’s practice explores the compatibility, or incompatibility of the organic and the inorganic, that of the artificial and technological. The anatomies of objects are dissected and exposed, shapeshifting and ever-changing, in simultaneous decay and renewal. At the same time, they are both treasured and fetishised - their smooth shapes, colours and proportions epitomising symmetry and ratio - and these creations of desire are thereby a step closer to [insert]. The gleaming warmth of cybernetic seduction indulges a sense of self, as we are dependable to the function of society, just as society is dependent on the machine - on the next big thing. We all fuck machines, most of us just don’t know it.
