Henrique Oliveira - Plumule

Plumule is a botanical term referring to the tiny rudimentary shoot of a plant embryo: its first true leaves. To our eyes, the plumule may look like a beginning but, in truth, it is nothing more than a point in the continuous cycle of life.

Best known for his immersive, cavernous large-scale installations made from discarded materials found on construction sites, such as plywood boards, metal and foam, Oliveira will be showcasing a selection of his most recent body of work, including a site-specific installation, as well as drawings, sculptures, wall-reliefs and unfolded paintings.
