Until the end of June, the Fondation Beyeler is showing the pubic art project GaiaMotherTree by the Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto in Zürich's Main Train Station. GaiaMotherTree is a monumental sculpture made of brightly colored hand-knotted cotton strips. It resembles a tall tree and extends right up to the ceiling of the station concourse, which is twenty meters high. Ernesto Neto's GaiaMotherTree is not only a sculpture, but also a walk-in structure that functions as a meeting place and a venue for interaction and meditation. A program of events takes place inside the installation, including concerts, workshops, talks, and guided tours. This video provides you with some impressions of the opening event.
