    Ernesto Neto, Brazilian sculptor, exhibited a site responsive installation in the Butler Gallery with sculptures that take into account the specific appeal of the space along with a perception that includes all the senses, transforming his exhibition into an intense experience.

    In his installations the choice of materials is quite crucial. Lycra, a textile typically used for women’s hosiery, polyamide fabrics, sand and styrofoam produce a soft and fantastic impact, where volume is balanced with the impression of ethereal lightness.
