A new commission from Carlos Bunga, creator of monumental structures carved from everyday materials that look at the relationship between art, design and practicality.

Carlos Bunga creates large-scale sculptures from repurposed domestic furnishings and cardboard, drawing on his personal experience of displacement and loss and elevating the idea that architecture and design can transcend our everyday reality.

Textured hanging canvases, painted surfaces and mobile furniture take on new shapes as you wander through the exhibition, demonstrating how the artist cuts, reconfigures and destroys the materials he uses, exploring the necessity and usefulness of art and design to interior furnishing.

And, in a particular highlight, the exhibition features dancers choreographed by Joe Moran, who perform in the gallery space exploring the shared relationship between bodies, space and time.
