Ernesto Neto - Hayward Gallery

When i was in Copenhagen,  Steph, Alex and i went over to Malmo, Sweden and saw Ernesto Neto's amazing work. It was like the adult equivalent of a children's interactive centre. Everything was white, tactile, burrowed fabric holes appeared from nowhere, endless mazes, dead ends, fabric walls above, below and sideways.

Anyhow, the Brazilians does a number of shows but this one is at the Hayward Gallery as part of a festival of Brazil.


I managed to get a sneak preview and it does not disappoint. This time, he layered different coloured mesh-like walls to add depth, has ceiling pockets of pebbles, globe lights and even a outdoor pool designed the 'Neto' way.

This is a MUST to look at.

Maze By Stuart Pearson Wright

Well, Sadly i am not much of a Keira fan, but i have to say that this short film does have an increasing intensity as the couple played by Keira Knightley and artist, Stuart Pearson Wright try to find each other and become desperate. Beautifully shot with incredible light and colours. I found this on Nowness.
