  • ‘Madness is part of life’
  • A tangible, lucid expression of madness – a quality thriving in all of us, shushed and controlled society
  • The artwork honors the taboo of the human condition
  • Madness has been part of society, something that must be controlled, hidden by medication as if it were the right thing to do, but right for whom? the world is full of passion; it is a little madness that lives inside and around us….we need it

  • Large scale, soft biomorphic blobs made of thin elastic fabrics where the viewers can interact with them by walking through, touching, smelling (as some of his installations are filled with aroma powders) or even lying on them, they provide experiences where the people’s whole body can feel the organic space.

  • Neto thinks about how to put humanity his exhibition
  • Influenced by “Anthropophagia”
  • Considers the human being in a scientific way, not only as an individual or as a part of society.  In society, the human being must be an organ or cell. So this is a cell. The drawing of this piece depicts a cellular structure

 

This artist gives me ideas for my final exhibition instillation. I like the idea of having something the audience can walk into – can touch and interact with. I think this will be beneficial for my concept as it adds dimension to an otherwise fictional, somewhat undefined subject. This is something I wish to experiment with through designs.
