    About The Work

    Inspired by the natural world and organic forms, Ernesto Neto's work often draws on the landscapes and beaches of his native Brazil. In this soft sculpture, Neto uses sea foam green lycra tulle and polypropylene pellets to create an abstract entity. Although it appears like a spineless sea creature or some other ambiguous form, Phytuziann refers to blankets used by the illegal street vendors of Brazil to quickly conceal their wares from the police. Neto says that the work is carried “inside small eggs, like culture in the time space of the social body.”
