Artwork by Hugo Teixeira

Towering Webs (2017)

Taipa Village Art Space is honoured to invite Luso-American photographic artist Hugo Teixeira to showcase his unique collection of documentary photography featuring an iconographic Macau fixture – bamboo scaffolding on construction sites, which is ubiquitous in the city as it undergoes rapid development.   The construction workers (bamboo masters) are acting like spiders, taking a risky job with courage to wrap the vertiginous towers with bamboo scaffoldings which look like spider webs.
