Ernesto Neto, collection: Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen Ernesto neto is one of the absolute leaders of Brazil’s contemporary art scene. His inspiration comes from the idea of equating art with living organisms in a kind of organic architecture, which invites the viewer to be an active participant. His works are mostly abstract installations which often take up the entire exhibition space. Sometimes they become spatial labyrinths which the visitor can enter and thereby experience the work and interact with it. He describes his works as an exploration and a representation of the body’s landscape from within. it is important to neto that the viewer should actively interact with and physically experience his work by feeling, smelling, and touching it.
