ERNESTO TO TRANSFORM ZURICH TRAIN STATION INTO A ZOO

30 June - 29 July 2018

From June 30 to July 29, 2018, the Fondation Beyeler will be showing an installation by Ernesto Neto in Zurich Main station. The monumental work GaiaMotherTree, a sculpture made of brightly colored hand-knotted cotton strips, resembles a tall tree, extending right up to the ceiling of the station concourse, which is twenty meters high. It is a walk-in structure that functions as a meeting place and a venue for interaction and meditation. A varied program of events for adults and children, with music, workshops, guided tours and talks, will take place inside the installation.
