Brazilian Conceptual artist Ernesto Neto manifests sensorial experiences in highly trafficked public spaces, encouraging passersby to slow down their everyday movements to interact with, smell, and relax in his temporary installations. His most recent work was created in partnership with the Fondation Beyeler in the concourse of Zurich’s main train station. The 65-foot green and orange work, Gaia Mother Tree, extends to the ceiling, while its base creates a temporary oasis in the middle of the bustling station.

巴西概念艺术家Ernesto Neto在人口稠密的公共空间中展现感官体验,鼓励路人放慢日常活动,与他的临时设施进行互动、让他们闻香和放松。他的最新作品是同贝耶勒基金会美术馆一起制作并安装在苏黎世火车站总站大厅里。这座65英尺长的绿色和橙色相间作品“盖亚母树”一直延伸到天花板,而它的基地在繁忙的车站中间形成了一片临时的绿洲。




The sculpture was created withafinger-crocheting technique that took 27 people several weeks to complete. The surface of the structure is fragile, yet like all of his installations, Neto encourages visitors to touch and experience their physical forms. In addition to activating touch, he has also hung over 1300 pounds of aromatic ground spices such as turmeric, cloves, cumin, and black pepper in bags that surround and counterbalance Gaia Mother Tree. These smells add to a feeling of relaxation which Neto hopes serves as a respite for visiting travelers.

这个雕塑是用手指编织技术制作的,花了27人几周时间才完成。结构表面很脆弱,但是像他所有的安装作品一样,Neto鼓励游客触摸并感受他们的物质形态。除了激活触觉之外,他还把1300磅以上的香料如姜黄、丁香、小茴香和黑胡椒挂在环绕和平衡“盖亚母树”的袋子里。这些气味增添了一种放松的感觉,Neto希望能为来访的旅行者提供休息。




The work is inspired by a spiritual connection with nature practiced by the Huni Kuin, members of an indigenous community in the Amazon region of Brazil. Neto has been working closely with the group since 2013, and their values, sense of community, and craft has been a large influence into his recent practice.  “This work is all about intimacy,” Neto explains in a short video that explores the process below.

这个工作的灵感来自于巴西亚马逊地区土著社区的成员Huni Kuin与大自然的精神联系。自2013年以来,Neto一直与该组织密切合作,他们的价值观、社区意识和手工艺对他最近的实践有很大影响。Neto在一段探讨以下过程的短视频中解释说:“这项工作全是关于亲密的。”




Gaia Mother Tree will be on display in Zurich Main station through July 29, 2018. You can see a list of public programming associated with the installation on Foundation Beyeler’s website. (via Designboom)
