Ernesto Neto

Expanding far beyond the traditional understanding of sculpture, Ernesto Neto’s biomorphic sculptures and installations stimulate human perception in its entirety.

His fundamental artistic attitude is deeply rooted in the art and cultural history of Brazil. The basic shift to an interactive art involving not only all of the senses but also its social potential had already been set in the 1960s, in particular by Lygia Clark, Hélio Oiticica, and Lygia Pape.

At the same time, indigenous knowledge and traditional handicraft play an important role in Neto’s artistic cosmos of biomorphic sculptures, which is based on a worldview devoted to the vision of nature, humankind, and society as forming a single whole.

Neto not only creates closeness; he also transcends boundaries. In the case of his Humanoides (2001/2015), visitors can and are encouraged to slip inside the sculptures—polyamide tubes filled with Styrofoam balls—to penetrate them, to smell them, to carry them around, and to sit on them, in order to experience the self in connection with art.

This immediate, corporeal-sensual accessibility is a regular feature of Neto’s works: people are a part of the art, just as they are a part of nature—mindfulness, responsibility, and respect are required in their interaction.
