Art Installation of Ernesto Neto at Kiasma Museum, Finland

In his current exhibition held at the Finnish national gallery Kiasma Museum, renowned Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto continues the tradition of Brazilian modernism, an approach strongly characterised by the viewers’ presence and participation. Through his art, Neto offers a moment of respite from the bustle of everyday life, calming the mind and tuning the senses. Neto is intrigued by traditions and rituals of Huni Kuin, 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.
