Carlos Bunga's (Oporto, 1976) project for the Palacio de Cristal is the continuation of the previous investigations, but he introduces new layers of reading into a location that is already connoted in its own right. Bunga focused the beginning of his career on painting, before expanding his interests towards three-dimensional experimentations, allowing him to explore the interrelationships between bodies and spaces. Regarding this project, the cycles of nature that surround the Palacio, as well as the context in which the building was originally constructed, form some of the keys to his new installation, which interlocks the dialectic between the inside and outside of discourses.
