Henrique Oliveira morphing our reality with "Baitogogo" installation
Between June 21 and September 9 Palais de Tokyo in Paris hosts installation called "Baitogogo" by Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira.
Henrique is master of confronting viewers perceptions with morphed shapes and objects and this installation is no different.
Perfection of geometrical order is being challenged by tumorous growth eating in to the comfort of clean lines and shakes-up our perception of normalcy. Unruly roots transforms architectural lines in to shapes summoned from the woods of fairytales.
It seems fantasy underworld extended its tentacles and reached us by crossing in to our everyday reality.

For his installations Henrique's material of choice is weathered wood - tapumes used for temporary fences in Sao Paulo (in Portuguese tapumes means boarding or fencing).
