A multisensory wooden walk-in cave
Brazilian specialist of wood sculpture, Henrique Oliveira is back with a new sensational piece or, rather, a new multisensory piece. Presented in Frankfurt, at the Schirn Kunsthalle, this wooden cave confuses the visitors’ sensations by playing with their senses. Entering the small doorway, the visitor looses track of the actual exhibition space, and gets sucked into this wooden illusion. The sound of cracking wood, the touch and the strong wooden smell all participate in making it look surreal. Built from recycled tapume wood, the immersive walk-in structure conveys both a feeling of being back in the womb or walking in a bizarre dream. The sculpture is at the Brasiliana Installations until the 5th of January 2014!
