Baitogogo
Combining elements of Palais de Tokyo’s architecture with wood from São Paulo, Brazilian artisit Henrique Oliveira creates a grand Gordian Knot titled Baitogogo. Baitogogo features twisting wooden limbs bursting out of a rigid, white frame, bringing the room to life.
Using wood from construction site fences in Brazil, Oliveira’s sculpture reflects the fast development of favelas (shanty towns) in Brazil. Some of Oliveira’s inspiration was drawn from diseases such as tumours, as reflected in Baitogogo's deeply knotted centre. The result is an impressive representation of “…the endemic and parasitic nature of these [favelas]” (Palais de Tokyo).Baitogogo is on display at Palais de Tokyo in Paris until September 9th 2013.Watch a video of Baitogogo's construction here.
