Leviathan Thot

Ernesto Neto

Pantheon, Paris, France

2007

A vast, temporary installation of stretched and suspended Lycra forms filled with Styrofoam spheres. The impression within the grandeur of the Pantheon was of an elaborate organic growth with its own contrasting language of forms.

Structure

It is hard to imagine proposing another installation in the Pantheon which could have quite the grace, scale and structural complexity of this work. By using lightweight, highly flexible materials yet producing something with real mass and presence the artist collaborated with the host building in making a total environment, not just a structure within a structure.
