“Power-Line” by Artist Agustina Woodgate

woodgate3

$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.

See more images below or on display at Spinello Projects in Miami until November 8th. All images courtesy of Spinello Projects and the artist. Photographs by Jesus Petroccini.

Jinshi6

Chinese artist Zhu Jinshi’s 12-meter long installation is made of 8,000 sheets of Xuan paper draped on pieces of bamboo suspended from the ceiling.
