From a conversation

Two exercises were drawn from a conversation I had with Ernesto Neto on July 20th 2010 about the influence of the city of Rio de Janeiro on his work. The first activity prompted the participant to intervene with materials in the areas outside the Hayward gallery. The second drawing was a map to set up a simple installation with two monitors showing a 5 minute video loop of two ajacent views of the same street outside Neto’s studio in Rio de Janeiro. People are invited to walk between the monitors in a straight line whilst watching and listening to the moving image of bustling street.
