Ernesto Neto (Brazilian, b.1964) is a contemporary visual artist known for creating vast sculptures out of white stocking-like material that he fills with various items, such as Styrofoam or scented spices. His inspiration comes from the Brazilian Neoconcretism movement that was prevalent in the late 1950s, and his installations often fill the entire exhibition area. In fact, Leviathan Thot, Neto s 2006 installation at the Pantheon in Paris, France, stretched from the top of the building s 200-foot-high dome ceiling all the way to the floor. The Abstract exhibits are designed to encourage visitors to become active participants; people can touch, poke, and even walk through most of his artwork.
