Carlos Bunga (b. 1976) is a Portuguese installation artist currently based in Barcelona, Spain. Bunga, whose work often consists of nontraditional materials such as cardboard, packing tape, and household paint, is interested in construction and destruction. His art, described as “process-oriented”, ponders the intersections of space, the body, experience and memory. Bunga’s work is described as “located at the point where architecture, painting and performance meet.” This description is aptly fitting to his work featured in the show, Reflejo (Reflection), an installation piece that explores community, performance and the body.
