HENRIQUE OLIVEIRA | 2021
The hidden archaeological remains of the first medieval city wall inspired Oliveira's contribution. The wooden branches of Banisteria Caapi (Desnatureza 4) crawl over the stone edge to the water. It seems as if nature has free rein behind the walled gardens, but his installation is misleading. The branches are artificial and mimic nature in a masterful way. The artist subtly plays with what we see in the city every day and what lies behind that reality. And how our lives can be determined, or guided, by things that are unconsciously present in our environment.
