Jardins Suspendus
Since June 29, 2019

The installations designed by Henrique Oliveira represent an increasingly invasive wilderness blending with architecture. The wood remains alive. It stretches, twists, swells, and spills to reveal the organic nature of the environment it is set in. The uncontrolled is then both frightening and fascinating at the same time.

Henrique Oliveira's original installation created in situ at the Jardins Suspendus on the occasion of Un Été Au Havre 2019 is a hybrid, almost living artwork made of various types of wood. This monumental organic sculpture seems familiar but also leaves an impression of mystery which makes the onlooker wonder what he is facing. This recognisable but enigmatic artwork fits perfectly within this botanical garden dedicated to the preservation of nature. Situated inside one of the buildings, it stands in stark contrast with the severe architecture of the building, while it adapts to its shapes, cavities, and cracks.
