Work by Ernesto Neto is included in I Feel the Earth Whisper, a group exhibition at Museum Frieder Burda.  Exploring the fragile beauty of the natural world and our profound interconnectedness with it through the installations of Bianca Bondi, Julian Charrière, Sam Falls and Ernesto Neto, the show invites visitors to reflect upon their relationship with the forests and unique ecosystems of the planet. Exceptionally united for the first time, the artists' works draw our gaze outward to the natural landscapes but also invite the living world inside, creating immersive spaces that allow us to experience the interconnected realms of the human and the more-than-human.

Ernesto Neto presents an immersive installation at MAAT, Lisbon, that evokes the crossing of cultures between different continents. Curated by Jacopo Crivelli Visconti, Nosso Barco Tambor Terra (our boat drum earth)’ is one of the largest sculptures the artist has ever made. Using images and materials generally associated with transatlantic voyages – sails, canvas and rope – Neto creates a dialogue with the museum’s space, surroundings and history.

Throughout the exhibition, the installation, which incorporates a series of instruments, will be periodically activated by a musical programme, devised by musicians and groups from various parts of the world. Consistent with the artist’s desire to create a truly collective work, various drums can also be played by visitors to the exhibition.

Ernesto Neto's Camelocama, 2010, is now on view at the Flamboyant Shopping Centre in Goiânia. Evoking the canopy of a tree, the crochet installation takes inspiration from the makeshift architecture of street vendors in the artist's native Brazil and uses gravity as its central element, inviting visitors to lay under or walk through the structure's hanging appendages.

Ernesto Neto’s immersive installation Slug Turtle, TemplEarth, 2022, has been unveiled in the desert of Qatar’s northernmost region, near the Al Zubarah and Ain Mohammed heritage sites. Composed of 8 football goal frames arranged in an octagonal ring and surrounded by white crocheted netting, the site-specific installation invites viewers to communicate with the spirit of the desert. ‘The work creates a space to meditate about our present, past and future in a social-ecological network shared by humans, birds, bugs, plants and all forms of life,’ the artist explains.

The work joins more than 100 public artworks commissioned by Qatar Museums in time for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022.
