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

    Wow! So brilliant and creative. I love this project too <3
