The Nasher Sculpture Center has invited internationally renowned Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto to create a new work for one of the large, Renzo Piano-designed galleries at the Nasher Sculpture Center. Often working on the scale of architecture, Neto creates experiential environments from sheer mesh fabric often filled with soft materials and aromatic spices. Anthropodino, his largest installation to date, suspends sensuous, spice-filled, fabric stalactites from the trusses of a cavernous former military industrial drill hall, over a sheer fabric-covered structure of passageways and rooms that span an area over 180 feet by 120 feet. Like many of his environments, the rooms feature soft, cushiony areas on which to lounge or inhale the alluring aromas of spices like clove, cumin, ginger, turmeric, black pepper and ginger. Organic, womblike, and elemental, Neto’s installations dramatically alter our environment, engage all of the senses and invite interaction.
