Animal architecture: Ernesto Neto

Ernesto Neto, Pantheon, Paris

Ernesto Neto works with abstract installations which often take up the entire exhibition space.

Sometimes he creates peculiar soft sculptures which the visitor is allowed to feel through small openings in the surface.

He also creates spatial labyrinths which the visitor can enter and thereby experience the work and interact  with it.
