A Building-Sized ‘GaiaMotherTree’ Knitted Sculpture | #ArtTuesday
Installed at Zurich’s main train station until July 29, this installation by Ernesto Neto looks amazing:
From June 30 to July 29, 2018, the Fondation Beyeler will be showing an installation by the Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto (b. 1964 in Rio de Janeiro) in Zurich Main station. The monumental work GaiaMotherTree, a sculpture made of brightly colored hand-knotted cotton strips, resembles a tall tree, extending right up to the ceiling of the station concourse, which is twenty meters high. It is a walk-in structure that functions as a meeting place and a venue for interaction and meditation. A varied program of events for adults and children, with music, workshops, guided tours and talks, will take place inside the installation.
