The intervention composed of a two-ton tree trunk, chainsaws and red resin occupied the front of the Neobambu shop in São Paulo. The work brought up the recent environmental tragedies in the country and carried as a source of inspiration the image of the Santinho de São Sebastião with arrows and the installation "Desvio para o Vermelho" by Cildo Meireles. Still during the creative process, I invited the nature photographer Araquém Alcântara who reproduced the image of the series "Post-burning of the Transamérica highway", work done in Altamira, Pará in 2010. The black and white photo depicted a devastated landscape and was installed on the glass façade, enhancing the installation that meant "Tree that bleeds", in the Tupi-Guarani language.
At the launch of the exhibition, I defined the concept of the work: "Exhibiting a crippled, bleeding tree, with chainsaws stuck in its body says a lot about the current moment. Brazil, which bears a tree in its name, does not deserve this greatness. We, Brazilians, are omissive to the destruction of our most precious asset: the natural riches. "The tree used in the work was removed from a residence because it presented a risk to the property, inspected and greeted by an environmental company with the authorization of the municipality.
