379: Beetles in primary colors
One of the most popular attractions in Inhotim – a park that hosts various pieces of contemporary art that are harmonized with the natural environment – is Troca-Troca (‘Change-Change’ or ‘Swapping’) by artist Jarbas Lopes (2002). Many visitors love to see the beetles (fuscas in Portuguese), made from swapped body parts that are painted in red, blue, and yellow. The cars are linked to each other through a sound system. Recently, the beetles have been repainted: the dark orange color being replaced by a red hue, as requested by the artist.
