Henrique Oliveira: Transarquitetônica

Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Universidade de São Paulo – MAC USP

27 Apr 201430 Nov 2014

Overcoming the challenge of occupying 1600 m² building designed by Oscar Niemeyer, the work of Henrique Oliveira circumvents columns of the building offering various incentives for the visitor who walk through it.

As much of his earlier works, also this huge sculpture is made with sidings, pieces of plywood and planks; Oliveira uses pieces of wood as if they were strips of leather nailed to an iron structure that has almost the appearance of a large skeletal system.

The installation fills the space with bullying, becoming immersive experience, work in which viewers are invited to enter to explore the cavernous interior.
