Why do we eat differently from each other? How to bring the diversity of people and territories to the table? How to create bridges between us and those who nourish us - the land, ancestral wisdom?
Each food carries an entire world and each recipe, a universe. They are stories, conflicts, borders, encounters and fissures that make a food culture complex, powerful and charming. How to carry this message by breaking borders and at the same time affirming identities that are rooted in their territories?

Ernesto Neto was born in 1964 in Rio de Janeiro, where he lives and works.
Since the beginning of his career, the artist has sought to challenge and expand the vocabulary of sculpture, exploring formal and symbolic connections between different materials, with the force of gravity as an implicit element. In recent years, Neto has turned to natural materials, such as fabrics and wood, and to physical interaction as a fundamental aspect of his poetics. Organic forms echo the matrices and colors of living organisms. His works activate multiple senses, inviting us to enter meditative states and reconnect with the sacred. He has been developing his work in several individual, group and Biennial exhibitions.
