Henrique Oliveira

Crane TV continue their series focusing on the creative folk of Brazil with a film following Henrique Oliveira, an incredible sculptor who you may remember from this large-scale work at Palais de Tokyo, Paris. Here, we watch as he constructs his biggest piece to date, back in his home town of São Paulo, using found and recycled plywood to create a sprawling mass of tunnels he refers to as ‘tumours,’ a comment on Brazil’s favelas and the treatment of those living the country’s shantytowns.
