Carlos Bunga’s sculptural and painterly structures propose architecture as body and mindscape. Using only cardboard and paint, Bunga fantastical buildings, furniture-like sculptures and paintings as immersive environments. His works combine a powerful materiality with the evocation of psychic states.

This book surveys his actions and performances; and documents over a decade of installations including major new works created for his survey exhibition at MAAT and Carmona e Costa Foundation in Lisbon. Enacting cycles of construction and destruction, Bunga explores states of dispossession and nomadism; the nature of spatial experience; and the creative and symbolic potential of ruin.
