CARAPACE  is an installation by artist Brian Jungen made out of old industrial waste bins. Insprired by the geometries of the geodesic dome and the turtle shell, this sculptural dome unites Jungen’s interest in modernist architecture with his ongoing engagement with animal imagery. This work was initially created in 2009 for the FRAC des Pays de la Loire, France. Jungen then completely reconfigured Carapace for his solo exhibition at the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, Washington, in the summer of 2010. In January 2011, for the Art Gallery of Alberta, Edmonton, he created a new and ultimately final configuration of Carapace. It is a sculpture, but gives inspiration to use it as pavilion or a temporary shelter aswell.
