THE ARCHITECTURE OF LIFE
O Presidente do Politécnico de Leiria convida V. Ex.ª para a conferência intitulada THE ARCHITECTURE OF LIFE do Artista Plástico Carlos Bunga, que terá lugar no dia 16 de Maio de 2019, no Auditório 1 da Escola Superior de Artes e Design das Caldas da Rainha, às 11horas.
Carlos Bunga’s architecturally scaled, site-specific installations, made from mass-produced materials such as cardboard, packing tape, and household paint, resemble temporary shelters or surreal, colorful urban interiors. Bunga builds these maquettes in dialogue with the surrounding architecture of the gallery, reconfiguring it as somewhere between a decaying space and a construction site. “Behind his psychologically and politically charged environments lie urgent and timely issues related to demographics, immigration, socio-economic disparity, and the fragility of contemporary city life,” wrote one curator. Extending his practice conceptually, Bunga also records his installations in videos, mixed-media collage, and drawings that resemble plans or diagrams.
