Ernesto Neto
HELSINKI, FINLAND  •  Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma  •  4 March - 4 September 2016
 
 

In recent years, Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto (b. 1964) has found strong resonance for his art from his collaboration with the Huni Kuin, an indigenous people in the Amazon. He is intrigued by their traditions and rituals, particularly by their desire to achieve happiness and harmony in life and to abide by the timeless wisdom of nature. 

Installed on the 5th floor in Kiasma, Neto’s new piece contains strong references to the culture of the Huni Kuin, both symbolically and tangibly. Inspired originally by the shape of the head of a boa constrictor, the installation contains elements that Neto has been using in his work for more than 20 years: the unity of humanity and nature, sensuousness, experientiality and the production of positive energy. 

The exhibition also reflects Neto’s views on respecting the rights and traditions of indigenous peoples and the appreciation of cultural difference.
