Art: The incredible cocooned corridors of Henrique Oliveira’s wooden installation

I saw Godzilla last night, and this wooden labyrinthine installation makes me think of what the cavernous, skeletal insides of the jurassic creature would look like if the movie had been designed by Guillermo del Toro. Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira’s interactive sculpture twists and turns like an organic growth that has taken over the Museum de Arte in Sao Paulo’s sleek and white corridors, tumbling around erect columns like a jungle taking over an uninhabited city. Henrique used repurposed wood pieces as the skin of his Transarquitetonica, and we imagine that walking through the cocooned corridors of the wooden maze must be an enthralling experience. An immense and intriguing project that will take you deep into the woods.
