The Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira has occupied a large space in the Contemporary Art Museum of the University of São Paulo. The reason? His installation entitled Transarquitetônica, his greatest work in his life as an artist. Using recycled materials from a urban factory in his hometown, Oliveira has configured snake-shaped columns made of wood that coil inside the gallery. Each column has a sort of tree roots. The artist’s idea is that the viewer can experience the world of sculpture and sitting almost overrun by it. The pieces begin as roots and end up like pieces of wood on a white narrow room. The idea is to see how architecture, man and nature have changed, leaving behind organic forms.
