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.
