Ernesto Neto’s GaiaMotherTree

Like a loosely-knit sweater, a spider-woven quilt, or a mammoth storybook tree, these hand-knotted, naturally-dyed cotton strips stretch up to the ceiling to create a giant sculpture and an intimate room. Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto‘s installation GaiaMotherTree is on display at Zürich Hauptbahnhof in Switzerland from June 30 to July 29, 2018. Via DesignBoom, the piece, “aims to bring the spirit of the Amazonian rainforest inside Zurich’s Central Station.”




These videos from Fondation Beyeler show visitors gathering and resting under the ‘tree’ canopy as live music, chanting, and yodeling fill the space.
