"The ideas that drive Neto's works are never singular, but a dense web of interests and observations drawn directly from experiences of contemporary life itself. At any time, one can always find equal measures of opposing concepts: order and entropy, nature and nurture, restraint and excess, mechanical and organic. These dualisms represent a more conceptual type of tension at play in Neto's work that mirrors the physical tension present through hid materials….Despite the abstract qualities of much of his artworks, there are always layers upon layers of themes and subjects informing their production, an abundance of thought that overflows the experience of them as discrete artworks and turns them into objects from and for life."
Cliff Lauson, excerpted from Intimate Immensity in "Ernesto Neto.

Ernesto Neto: The Edges of the WorldErnesto Neto: The Edges of the World

Published by Hayward Publishing.
Edited and introduction by Cliff Lauson. Text by Moacir dos Anjos, Philip Ursprung. Interview by Ralph Rugoff.

Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto (born 1964) draws on a variety of sources for inspiration, ranging from the natural world to department stores, modernists like Alexander Calder and Constantin Brancusi to Brazilian predecessors like Lygia Clark and Hélio Oiticica. Neto's multi-sensory environments exist, in the artist's words, "as a place of sensations, a place of exchange and continuity between people." This important survey is published to accompany an exhibition at London's Hayward Gallery, in which Neto reimagines the gallery's concrete spaces and brutalist architecture with a new site-specific commission and a number of new sculptural works. The artist's works incorporate the Hayward's outdoor sculpture terraces, creating an interrelated series of spaces in which the relationships between inside and outside are provocatively reconfigured. Spanning Neto's career to date, this publication contains texts by key international scholars.

Ernesto Neto: AnthropodinoErnesto Neto: Anthropodino

Published by Gregory R. Miller & Co..
Text by Adriano Pedrosa, Tom Eccles.

Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto (born 1964) has won legions of fans with his soft, biomorphic sculptural installations that invite viewers to touch and poke them, seducing and activating all of the senses at once. Often using a white stretchy material stuffed with styrofoam pellets and sometimes aromatic spices, Neto aims to provoke an experience of powerful bodily sensuousness in his audience, whom he encounters in a variety of settings, from galleries and museums to outdoor public sites. Anthropodino chimes with a number of large shows opening internationally in 2010, and provides a first substantial overview of Neto's career, with a focus on the artist's hugely popular 2009 installation of that name, exhibited at the Park Avenue Armory (where it filled the 55,000 square foot hall). This much-lauded work, which draws upon every element of Neto's practice, and which was memorably characterized by one reviewer as “art that loves you back,” serves neatly as a springboard to appraise the full range of the artist's achievements over the past two decades. Published in collaboration with the Brazilian publisher Cobogó.

Ernesto Neto: From Sebastian to OliviaErnesto Neto: From Sebastian to Olivia

Published by Holzwarth Publications.

With the complex installation From Sebastian to Olivia, Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto presents an artistic vision of organic relations. As the title suggests, this is a world of compressed spaces, originating from the knowledge that two people can share a room and still be cut off from one another by its architecture--unable to come into contact or communicate. Structurally, the work illustrates the isolation and loneliness of two spheres, male and female, while indicating that contact could become possible. “I am sculpture and think as sculpture,” says Neto, describing his perception that sculpture is a living organism and knows no bounds. In addition to subtle lighting direction and the use of scents, the artist employs stairways, a viewing platform, a swing, stools, free-standing sculptural works, spice drawings and wall sculpture to demonstrate this blurring of boundaries. Here, spatial and sensual layers are linked to recreate a world of organic membranes.
