Ernesto Neto: GaiaMotherTree. Finissage

This video documents the Finissage of the Public Art Project GaiaMotherTree by the artist Ernesto Neto at Zürich’s Main Train Station on 28 July 2018.

GaiaMotherTree is a monumental sculpture made of brightly colored hand-knotted cotton strips. It resembles a tall tree and extends right up to the ceiling of the station concourse, which is twenty meters high. Ernesto Neto’s GaiaMotherTree is not only a sculpture, but also a walk-in structure that functions as a meeting place and a venue for interaction and meditation. GaiaMotherTree is an art project by Fondation Beyeler.
