brazilian artist erneto neto has created ‘crazy hyperculture in the vertigo of the world’. neto has created a insulated, suspended labyrinth covers the entirety of the space. the tactile installation is one in which the gallery goer enters the sculpture, walking from the entrance of the ground floor to the sky-path the artist created. strung through out the membrane are small satchels containing spices of various color and scent, further engaging the viewer with the interactive sculpture. the work is formed with the ideals of neo-concreto, ‘places the spectator at the center of creative action’ concept in mind, engaging many of the viewer’s senses in order for the individual to fully comprehend the piece.

‘crazy hyperculture in the vertigo of the world’ was developed for installation at faena arts center, in buenos aires, argentina.
