An internationally renowned artist who has created major installations at the Panthéon in Paris, as well as in New York’s Park Avenue Armory, the Rio artist Ernesto Neto imbues his sprawling, tactile works with interactive elements that take them beyond geometric abstraction. Indeed, there’s something about the woven ropes and lines he uses for his huge, stretchy creations that’s almost childlike. His works – think the translucent lycra pendulums of Anthropodino, or the crocheted nets of plastic balls that form The Island Bird – are often photographed with kindergarteners running through or falling into them, so that it’s difficult to forget the kid-friendly qualities of such touchy-feely constructions.

What, then, to make of his upcoming exhibition at Fortes Vilaça, entitled ‘Não Tenha Medo do Seu Corpo’ (‘Don’t Be Afraid of Your Body’)? Since this show promises more crochet art, it probably won’t be as adult as its name might suggest. It’s also a relatively safe bet that your five-year-old will find the works enthralling.
