A narrative of nature's path

The Brazilian artist displays his unquestionable talent through his latest colossal installment in his home country

Currently on show at the Museum of Contemporary Art at The University of Sao Paulo, Henrique Oliveira's Transarquitetônica installation is his largest to date, and consists of a labyrinth of roots made entirely out of recycled wood, brick, concrete and clay.

The structure engulfs the entire gallery space, and allows visitors to physically enter the snake-like arteries that spread through the interior.

The attendees have the ability to decide which routes to take as they absorb the smells, sights and sounds of the experience,  giving them an opportunity to appreciate the architectural aspects of the installation from the inside.
