Ernesto Neto gives us a Malmo experience

The current exhibition at Malmö Konsthall, Sweeden, is worthy of a mention. Ernesto Neto at Malmo – the Malmo Experience will be on until May 2006.

Ernesto Neto works with abstract installations which often take up the entire exhibition space. His materials are gossamer-thin, light, stretchable fabrics in nylon or cotton. Neto’s art is a sensual experience which creates associations with the body and with something organic. His inspiration comes from Brazilian neo-concretism. At the end of the 1950s artists rejected modernism’s ideas of autonomous geometric abstraction and equated art with living organisms in a kind of organic architecture, and invite the viewer to be an active participant. This looks like fun and I would love to be invited to participate and play in a space created by neto. It's like being inside the belly of a soft invertibrate whale…… or something.

Malmö Konsthall, Sweeden, was opened in 1975 and is one of Europe’s largest exhibition halls for contemporary art.
