Giant Hammocks

Brazilian artist, Maria Nepomuceno creates large-scale installation sculptures at Magasin 3, Stockholm Konsthall. The exhibition, allows the raw material, rope and necklaces are crafted to take on a natural spiral-form. The giant beads placed against small beads create an exaggerated feel of its traditional form and content. In Latin America as well as many other traditional countries, hammocks are considered places for sleep, birth and death. Nepomuceno suspends her sculpture and refers to the notion of cycle and movement. Her work is quite inspirational and refers to traditional myths and questions the spiritual transition between past and present.

Maria Nepomuceno's exhibition Always in Spiral opened on January 23rd, 2010 and will be on view until June 6th, 2010.
