“Power-Line” by Artist Agustina Woodgate

$8.05, Installation view, 2016

 

Argentinian artist Agustina Woodgate’s “Power-Line” exhibition explores the politics of time through two installations: $8.05 and National Times.

The first involves a critique of the contemporary equation of time and money, illustrated through a series of suspended hourglasses filled with ink dust extracted from U.S. banknotes (amounting to Florida’s current minimum wage of $8.05).

The idea of who gets to control how that precious time is spent is furthered in National Times, a piece comprised of a group of 40 synchronized “slave clocks,” (the kind you’re likely to associate with your elementary school days) all interconnected and leading to one solitary “master clock.” Not only does the digital “master” dictate the time of all the others, the minute hands of the slave clocks are designed to gradually scrape away their own clock-face as time progresses.

Stuffed Animal Skin Rugs by Artist Agustina Woodgate

Beautiful rugs made out of recycled stuffed animal skins, by one of my favourite artists, Agustina Woodgate (I previously featured her work here, here, and here).

The rugs not only reference the personal histories of the toy’s owners, but investigate the rug as an object organizing and displaying memories and lineages.”

Kulturpark

Kulturpark
One of my favourite artists Agustina Woodgate just sent me a little message about Kulturpark. I rarely post Kickstarters but this idea really resonated with me. Kulturpark is a public art project to re-open an abandoned amusement park in Berlin as a place of creative exchange.
