Agustina Woodgate Hair Brush
Agustina Woodgate aims to create art that fosters exchanges between people rather than encounters between a viewer and object. Through these exchanges, meaning is elaborated collectively, rather than in the space of individual consumption. Often responding to a place or situation, Woodgate makes objects, site-specific and context-based installations, performance, and collaborative event-based projects that focus on the interplay between human beings and their surrounding environment at both macro and micro levels. Site specificity is usually the point of departure for her creative process, involving research into the site and its relations. Combining many disciplines she pursues ongoing collaborations with creatives from various background. Agustina works inclusively and socially, finding new access points for communication to create public, intensive, and process-oriented works. Woodgate graduated from the National University of Visual Arts, Argentina, in 2004 and has exhibited extensively in U.S and abroad. She has initiated collaborative projects and has been awarded artists residencies both nationally and internationally. Originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina, lives in Miami, FL.
