What you are seeing is not a network of caves formed over a million years deep within a magical forest. What you are seeing is an artwork made by an artist and his team – presumably not over a million years – in a room inside a museum in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
‘Transarquitetonica’ is Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira’s largest installation to date, able to immerse its viewers by letting them explore its wooden caverns and winding paths. Like his previous works, the installation was built from ‘tapumes’, an inexpensive wood commonly found in construction sites as makeshift walls. He uses the flexible material to make the man-made cave system look like a set of roots from the outside.
‘Transarquitetonica’ will be on display at Museu de Arte Contemporanea da Universidade until November.
