Alexander and Bonin is pleased to announce the opening of a solo exhibition of work by Carlos Bunga.

Central to Bunga’s exhibition is a site-specific installation that emerges from a dialogue with the gallery space.

Central to Carlos Bunga’s exhibition is a site-specific installation that emerges from a dialogue with the gallery space. A nearly invisible structure, the installation derives its monumentality from what is not there, encouraging viewers to rethink their experience of space. A series of sculptural works will similarly explore concepts of fragmentation and spatial reconstruction.

The exhibition will also include works that make use of mass-produced materials such as cardboard, tissue, and house paint. Bringing to mind colorful interior walls or pointing to the space surrounding them, they seemingly escape the traditional boundaries of painting, sculpture, and architecture.
