Spatially Textile: Installation by Ernesto Neto at Zurich’s Main Station
The sculpture functions as a meeting place as well: a program of events featuring workshops and presentations is taking place inside the tent-like space.
Neto’s recent works are characterized by organic shapes and lightness. Visitors are always challenged to come into contact with the sculptures in order to create their own perceptive sensations. In the reception of GaiaMotherTree as a work, immediate perception is a salient feature. Inside the virtually immaterial space, visitors can sit down on a circle of cushions. Hanging, drop-shaped elements are filled with spices and dried leaves which enable a singular sensual experience.
