Having originally trained as a painter, artist Carlos Bunga’s work now explores the relationship between painting and sculpture, using everyday materials such as cardboard and adhesive tape to create structures that interact with the architectural surroundings in which they exist. It stands to reason, then, that for his exhibition in the Capella MACBA, Bunga has drawn inspiration from the building’s origins as a place of Catholic worship, as well as its urban environment of the Raval and Barcelona beyond. Bringing past and present together, the exhibition aims to revisit the building’s spiritual past in a reflective sense, as well as to question the use of public and urban space today. Having lived in Barcelona for the past six years, this is Bunga’s first solo exhibition in the city and promises to be both thought-provoking and visually impressive.
