Carlos Bunga creates monumental structures out of everyday materials to propose architecture as transitory and corporeal in his first major UK commission.
Bunga makes cardboard constructions and repurposes domestic furnishings to create an evolving installation in dialogue with the historic interiors of the gallery and its public.
Bunga draws on his own experience of displacement and loss; but he is also inspired by the American Shaker movement’s insistence on simplicity in their interiors and furniture, exploring what is necessary and useful in art, architecture and design.
He also invites the choreographer Joe Moran and dancers to perform in the gallery during the course of the exhibition, exploring their shared interest in the relationship among bodies, physical space and time.
Entry to this exhibition is free, but you must book a timed entry slot beforehand. To do so, visit the Whitechapel Gallery’s website.
