Description

Edited by Emily Butler with Ines Costa

Originally training as a painter, Carlos Bunga (b. 1976 Porto, lives and works in Barcelona) uses mass-produced materials such as cardboard, adhesive tape and household paint to produce large-scale installations. Created in dialogue with the existing architectural space, these ephemeral structures recall theatre sets, architectural models or temporary shelters, inviting viewers to rethink their physical and emotional experience of space and architecture.

This publication celebrates Bunga’s first major UK commission, an evolving architectural cardboard construction at Whitechapel Gallery and a series of live performances by choreographer Joe Moran. Fully illustrated, with new installation photography documenting the commission, the catalogue also includes a new interview with the artist.

Paperback, 192 pages, 222 × 162 mm
