Carlos Bunga

Born in Porto, 1976 and lives in Barcelona, Spain

Bunga uses mass-produced materials such as cardboard, adhesive tape, and household paint to produce site-specific, process-oriented installations. Emerging from a dialogue with the existing architectural space, these ephemeral structures recall life-size architectural models as well as temporary street shelters. Through his work,Bunga not only encourages viewers to rethink their experience of space and architecture, but also evokes the transient and fragile nature of urban structures. His work has been included in group exhibitions at Artists Space, New York (2005), New Museum, New York (2007), Warsaw Museum of Modern Art (2009), University Art Museum, University of California, Santa Barbara (2012) and the National Museum of Art, Cardiff (2014). Bunga participated in “Manifesta 5” in San Sebastián (2004), “inSite_05”at theSan Diego Museum of Art (2005); “14th Carrara International Sculpture Biennial” (2010), “29th Bienal de São Paulo” (2010); and “Artes Mundi 6” in Cardiff (2013).
