Carlos Bunga: Doubled Architecture


Bunga’s installation for the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit relies on his usual materials: cardboard, glue, and tape. Piecing together these elements, Bunga forms a spiraling maze within the Museum’s gallery that doubles and heightens our sense of enclosure. Echoing the rawness of the Museum’s building through its simple materials, Bunga’s labyrinth creates both an architectural space and a psychological enclosure. Forcing visitors into a space of contemplation, quiet, and confinement, Bunga’s installation encourages a confrontation with the self, an examination of our own interiority within the constructed space of its cardboard walls.

The exhibition Carlos Bunga: Double Architecture is organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit.
