Agustina Woodgate



Agustina Woodgate creates sculptural works, performances and interactions that generate and imagine new landscapes. These new landscapes transform socio-political phantoms into generative proposals for re-organizing space.


Woodgate’s works invert fields of symbolic reference from the gallery/exhibition hall to the public domain. She combines surreal, conceptual, formal, and contextual practices in works that playfully test the tension between the viewer and reality, converting surplus material and fantasies of outmoded objects into new possibilities of perception and action.
