A twisted entanglement of tree branches appears to grow organically from the beams of Paris’ Palais de Tokyo museum in this installation by Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira. To look like a impossibly tangled Gordian Knot. The large installation was created from reclaimed tapumes – a plywood material traditionally used in Brazilian towns to construct the hoardings around construction sites. Oliveria collects the discarded tapumes from the streets of São Paulo, where he both lives and works.
