The Impossible Knot of Columns by Henrique Oliveira

Artist and innovator Henrique Oliveira has transformed the Palais de Tokyo into one of his organic creations that merges from the columns and beams into a whirlwind of branches. With a title of “Baitogogo” this work is one our favorites from this master of intricacy.

On display until September of this year in Paris, the installation is influenced by his Brazilian culture and the constant usage of “tapumes,” or wooden blockades. The organic works are also metaphorically used for the descriptive growth of favelas and tumors all with the simple visual representation. It all draws back around to Brazil, and this particular space is a beautiful analogy.
