Ernesto Neto
The scent of cloves, turmeric, and pepper... Neto has taken silk stockings and filled them with spice: tie a knot, fill the sack, throw it on the ground. Fragrant biomorphs hang like teardrops from the concrete beams, exuding a rich aroma recalling Colonialism, the Body, plastic elastic - nevermind. The titles are onomonopoeias, "Puff", "Paff", "Poff" each describe the sound of the falling bag. In order to fully appreciate the olfactory impact of this sculptural installation, sniff a jar of spices while staring at this image.
