The Brazilian artist who is famed for his interactive and immersive sculptural environments, created using translucent, stretchable fabrics that invite the viewer to connect with nature, presents his first solo exhibition on the African continent. The exhibition includes new works as well his celebrated large scale immersive sculpture Um dia todos fomos peixes (One Day We Were all Fish) which visitors are invited to come and explore.
