Poetry Bombing with Agustina Woodgate

Agustina Woodgate has been going into thrift stores and secretly sewing poems inside the clothes. I want to marry her. I previously posted her hair sculptures here. Watch the video below!

  • Absolutely brilliant! New level

  • love the guts involved!

  • Love it! Kind of reminds me of the movie “Elling” where the main character would put his poetry in sauerkraut packages.

  • katy

    love this!

  • we just showed her in our last show at GARFO Art Center in Salt Lake! her rugs are awesome too.

  • Well, I haven’t seen this one before! When I read what this post was about, I was thinking of stitched lettering on the clothes but this is a much better idea as it’s not affecting anything about the clothing, simply adding what looks like an additional label but with something much more interesting written on it – who could be annoyed at receiving a short and sweet little poem with their items?

    • yea i like that it is an intervention that is in no way negative

  • hahaha! that’s awesome… wonder if she ever takes stuff in the dressing room to sew.

    • i was thinking the same thing! would be easier!

  • Thanks everyone! Its been a lot of fun! and thanks a lot for posting

    • you are the best agustina!

  • lapetitefaon

    so cute! I’ve found poems left in library books but I do like that there is something more permanent to these pieces than a paper which would be easily discarded without even a pause, brilliant!

  • moni trucco

    agus cada dia te admiro mas! recien ahora me doy cuenta lo que hiciste. vas al thrift store buscando una pilcha y en lo que elegis, te encontras conque un hada buena te dejo escrito algo lindo, para el alma.una carica con palabras. besos, la suegri.

  • omgggggg girl crushhhhh! how amazingly creative

  • <3

  • Ewa

“The Omega Project” by Rone

Rone continues his exploration of doomed and abandoned spaces with his latest immersive exhibition. “The Omega Project” sees the Melbourne-based artist setting up shop in a condemned suburban cottage in his hometown. Granted access and free rein before it’s torn down, Rone has filled the early 1900s weatherboard house with his signature ‘Jane Doe’ portraits. He also teamed up with interior stylist, Carly Spooner, to recreate the archetypal interiors, furthering the jarring mix of beauty and destruction particular to the experience of street art. As Rone explains:

“The concept of creating something beautiful within the context of decay and decline is central to the experience of any street artist. As is the idea that whatever you create might be gone the next day. For the artist, street art is all about embracing that transience and impermanence. And for the audience, it’s about seeing it (and taking photos of it) while you can”

Click here to check out the incredible 3D tour created by Phoria as well as more images and video below. While the exhibition starts July 22 and runs until the end of the month, the exact location will only be disclosed via email tomorrow morning to those who RSVP!
