Twisted Tree Branch Installation by Henrique Oliveira

Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira’s installations often feature a spectacular presence of tree branches overpowering artifice. Titled Baitogogo, the sculpture  seems to be growing organically from white beams of  Paris’ Palais de Tokyo museum. Composed from popular reclaimed Brazilian plywood material, tapumes, the entangled tree branches are desperately reclaiming their space. Both an aesthetically and conceptually beautiful project, Oliveira’s intentional contrast between nature and the manmade construction begin an environmental conscious dialogue we often ignore.
