Managed to catch the Ernesto Neto show at the Hayward Gallery in it’s last few days. I didn’t know what to expect when I walked in to see loads of oversized fluorescent tights suspended between walls. But that was pretty much all it was- one giant bouncey stretchy room. You could pull and tug anything you wanted to, and touch whatever you felt like touching. It was pretty fun and colourful- check it out before it closes if you can. The gallery was split between this show and something called The New Décor, which was utter shit (from what I could gather, it was all old bits junk grouped together to make ugly bits of furniture- real cutting edge…), but your ticket covers both exhibits.
