Carlos Bunga

Milton Keynes Project

Since appearing in Manifesta 5 in San Sebastian in 2004, the Portuguese artist Carlos Bunga has steadily gained international recognition for his distinctive sculptural interventions that propose ideas about impermanence and the fragility of memory. In 2006 Milton Keynes Gallery played host to the artist’s first UK project, and later that same year, he won the 3rd International Castellan painting prize.

Bunga’s installations comprise makeshift corridors and labyrinthine spaces, crudely fashioned from sheets of corrugated cardboard and held together with brown packing tape. Occasionally the artist will paint the walls in sweeping monochromatic planes of colour as a subtle process of domestication. Working with intense speed, there is little attention to detail, and the bare minimum is employed to transform a cardboard box, perceptually and metaphorically into a ‘room’.
