"The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao presents Ernesto Neto: The Body that Carries Me, a unique retrospective dedicated to the work of Ernesto Neto (b. 1964, Rio de Janeiro), one of Brazil's most outstanding artists who is internationally renowned for his organic sculptures, which often take on colossal dimensions, such as the enormous installation hanging in the Museum's Atrium, Léviathan Thot (feminine) [Léviathan Thot (Fêmea), 2006].


Sponsored by Iberdrola, the exhibition offers a selection of more than fifty pieces from the end of the 1980s to the present, some of which the artist has especially reconfigured in order to adapt to the Museum's unique architectural spaces while others were created specifically for the exhibition in Bilbao".
