Ernesto Neto is included in To Weave the Sky: Textile Abstractions from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection. Presenting textile-based works from over 100 intergenerational artists from around the world, the exhibition takes inspiration from weaving’s traditional ties to abstraction and geometry, landscape and the organic, tactility and intimacy, and indigenous cosmologies and ritual.

Ernesto Neto’s BasnepuruTxanaYubé, 2015, is on view in the exhibition Remedios: Where new land might grow. The crochet installation is the result of a collaboration between the artist and the Huni Kuin – an indigenous people of Brazil and Peru – and incorporates their teachings and healing practices into its material and symbolic elements. The work’s structure is borrowed from Huni Kuin meeting places and echoes their function as sites of social assembly, ritual practice, and spiritual healing. Alongside BasnepuruTxanaYubé, the exhibition considers further works of contemporary art which engage notions of planetary and humanitarian recovery.

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.
